Label with halo returning a blurry representation

Discussion created by justgis on Sep 30, 2011
I am experiencing a labeling issue I've never encountered before. I've used this labeling many times before without a problem. I use a halo on footage labels in maps to make them easier to read. When I export the map to a pdf, using mapbooks, the halo changes from white to the same color as the text making it look blurry rather than stand out. If I don't use mapbooks and export to a pdf from the file menu, it doesn't happen. I've tried changing dpi without any luck. I've tried converting the labels to annotation and the same thing happens. The export also changes some of the labels to a different color. Any help is appreciated, as usual!

I've attached a .doc with a screenshot of my pdf.
