I have a label service published to ArcGIS server that I consume in a number of web applications. I had recently created a new identical service to replace the old one. I have checked and rechecked, and as far as I can tell, both are identical.
When I add the new service into any web application, the labels appear blocky, and have white space around the edges. They do NOT have a halo around them, but it almost appears like they have a pixelated one. It makes them very hard to read.
Picture attached. I've also attached a screenshot of the original service for comparison.
Anyone know why it would appear blocky and how to fix it? I republished the service and recreated the cache, and still have the same issue.
After republishing my layers service 4 times, the last time removed the blocky look around the letters and returned to normal. I do not know what caused this or how it was fixed.
