Hi Anish,

We're aware of issues with Chrome and fonts (!topic/pdfnet-webviewer/Oklyffwp5kw). To improve the situation there we will render the canvas at a larger size and then scale it down. We only do this up to a certain page size and only when the page is <= 100% zoom because this increases the rendering time and the memory usage.

At what zoom levels do you see the issue? Can you send a screen shot of what the page should look like and if possible can you send the XOD document so we can take a look.
