Printing simply doesn't work very well. KDE blames this on Qt, but
depending on Qt for printing has turned out to be a serious mistake.
Magnification only goes to 400% which is not enough for some uses.
I didn't see any problems with the font rendering that PL mentioned. Is
it possible that the PDF he is viewing contains bit mapped fonts? A
proper PDF doesn't need to contain fonts at all, but doing this doesn't
seem to be a simple thing. If these are PDFs that you created, the
problem is probably that you have "Enable Font embedding" checked on the
Printer page in "qtconfig"; uncheck it and see if things improve.
