You might want to check the "DisplaySize" entry in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. If the prepositions are off, the dpi calculations on the screen could be off. Some apps may use this value to draw the characters on the screen.
Right... and thanks for replying.
Does a PDF print properly ? Yes... wherever else I print it (no printer on my home computer tho).
Your comment on DisplaySize entry could be it, except that this
wouldnt explain (to me) why, for instance, Evince displays the file correctly, but ImageMagick wont.
Finally, you suggested that an optimal display size might be a
factor... indeed... if I change the screen resolution, I get very
near to correct dimensions in Acrobat Reader... one of the apps
giving me a problem... however, this is still wrong, and again,
is not the same for all applications.
For what it's worth, I originally suspected this might have to
do with non-Linux applications (AcroRead) versus linux... but
as stated, it shows up in ImageMagick - a foundation linux
application. I am clueless.
