I see only rotated text, no distorted text. The steps are only a screen issue.
Have you got View > Display Performance > High Quality Display selected ?
Alternatively, export it as a PDF and have a look at that to see if it's rendered properly.
Hi, I have. When exported as a pdf it still shows distorted, however, when printed it appears fine. The probmle is this file will only be viewed digitally so I need it to look correct when vied as a pdf online. Thanks!
There is no "correct" way to view this: it will display as good as your client's PDF viewer allows.
There is nothing to fix. If you consider it unacceptable, do not rotate text boxes.
It seems a very low res image, I think that's why it's pixelating. Assuming you added the text in Photoshop to the drawing, I suggest you export the document from Photoshop as a PDF and Place that in your InDesign document.
InDesign uses a proxy for a placed file’s preview, and if it is a vector file with black lines the resolution of your display comes into play when you zoom out to a low magnification—there aren’t enough pixels to resolve the black lines when the preview is reduced. When you angle a black line the anti-aliasing possibilities for smoothing the line are limited. If you zoom in to a high magnification there will be enough display pixels to draw the lines more accurately:
Acrobat has a display preference that affects the PDF preview, but the results are still limited by your display’s resolution:

Else please confirm if any of the suggestions above helped.
Thanks for checking in. These have been great suggesitons but none of them have helped yet with the text distortion. Do you have a way to fix it?
