Hey guys

new guy on the forum although I'm experienced in LaTeX. I hope i used the right forum for this question, if not, please direct me.

I am writing a CV using the moderncv class and it looks great, only issue is, when I produce the PDF some letters are of unequal height and it look really ugly, which I don't want in the CV. It is only a problem when using multiple capital letters after each other, for example: DTU, CINF, CASE and so on. See the attached PDF.

Can anybody fix this? I have no idea why this happens.

I'm using the TeXmaker editor and MiKTeX. Curiously it looks fine in the embedded viewer in TeXmaker.

Hi Atamsih,

welcome to the board!

That's a sign that it's a problem of your separate PDF reader program. I guess it's the Adobe Reader. I noticed unequal heights of capital letters too. But zoom in: you will see the height is actually equal but there's a display problem at some zoom levels.

I could see this with your attached document in the Adobe Reader. With the PDF reader on my iPad, it seemed fine at all zoom levels when I tried zooming in and out.

Hey Stefan

I can't belive i didn't realise that. I tried with another viewer (foxit reader) and i worked perfectly.

Thank you for help

Kind regards!
