Using the No printer option in the Crystal Reports Page Setup dialog box is not recommended as a way to improve the font and object resolution in the exported PDF because doing so does not always scale fonts and objects linearly. This effect becomes apparent in the exported PDF document. Using a high-resolution printer driver reduces or eliminates this effect.
