Creating Stamps from Excel - Jagged Lines / Pixelated Text

In the past month or so, I have noticed that when I copy and paste shapes from Excel into Acrobat as stamps, the shapes appear to have jagged lines and pixelated texts. I have attached an example file--the "8.00" and "9.00" stamps have the smooth look I want (I copied these stamps from some older PDF files created before this issue started), while the "8.05" and "9.05" stamps show the present issue. I don't know if this can be fixed on my end or if this is a result of a software bug. Thoughts?

Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well.

 

Have you started experiencing this issue recently?

 

What is the version of the OS and the Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the recent version 24.02.20687 installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.

 

What is the workflow/steps you are doing to create these stamps? A small video recording would be very helpful so we can try to reproduce the issue at our end.

Hi, 

I am using version 24.02.20687. All I am doing is simply copying the stamps from Excel and pasting into Acrobat. I have attached a clip.

 

Thanks for your help.

Interesting.

 

The size of your cell in Excel influences the paste:

The upper got sized to 72 in Excel.

The lower was my standard size when I opened an empty spreadsheet (11):

If it makes a difference, the shape I am copying in Excel is actually a text box without borders and with an invisible background. I am copying this shape, not a cell with a value, into Acrobat.

Yes, apparently that makes a huge difference:
