vector shape looks jagged - Macromedia Freehand

I created some very simple characters (letters) and when I print them at 100 %, there are some "bumps" on most characters which I can't explain (my printer ist fine). If I scale the characters down, it looks really bad. Here is an [url]http://cyberdao.com/freehand1.gif[/url] Any ideas what I did wrong? Thanks a lot for your help! Marcus...

    Maybe I'm just missing what the problem is but where are the bumps in the image?

    Hi Wes,

    this is a screenshot from FH MX and it looks ok for me, but when I print it, the top curve of the "e" does not look clean and there are tiny bumps (does not look like a vector). When I print a regular font on the same page, the font looks perfect, only my own characters look crappy.

    What kind of printer are you printing to? Is it a PostScript printer?

    If you're printing to a non-Postscript printer, FH sends a rasterized
    version of the vector info on the page. Live text is handled separately.

    In the Doent panel, set the Printer Resolution to the max your printer
    can handle (e.g. 1200 dpi for some laser printers).

    In File > Doent Settings > Raster Effects settings, set the Resolution to
    300 ppi. Note: this will dramatically slow down redraw so set it back to 72
    ppi when you're working in FHMX.
