Compare Printing Result between VeryPDF PDF Print Command Line and Adobe Reader

Hi,

We are currently evaluating your product VeryPDF PDFPrint (Free Trial) and ran into some issues regarding print quality. Our PDFs print fine through Adobe Reader but when using PDFPrint the fonts and (in some cases) colors and size change. We have tried various options of which none solved the problem.

* pdfprint.exe print.pdf (letter-spacing is inconsistent/kerning)
* pdfprint.exe -raster print.pdf (wrong colors and scaled too large, even with -scalex and -scaley set to 100)
* pdfprint.exe -raster2 print.pdf (wrong colors and scaled too large, even with -scalex and -scaley set to 100)
* pdfprint.exe -useembedfont print.pdf (all fonts are too thick/bold)
* pdfprint.exe -vector print.pdf (doesn't print anything, printer ejects empty paper)
* pdfprint.exe -shell print.pdf (opens Adobe Reader, this is not what we want)
* pdfprint.exe -shell2 print.pdf (same as above)

Attached is a compilation of scanned prints. The critical differences are highlighted with a short description.

Also I have attached the sample PDF file we used for the tests.

Version: VeryPDF PDFPrint Command Line v3.0 (Build Nov 8 2012) (this seems
to be the latest trial version)
