It has been set to outline Corprus.Medium for some time and I don't
like it at all on paper. On screen it looks quite thin and small but
tolerable, on paper it is blocky and really thick black.

To my eyes Pluto prints much nicer from the same font, I just don't
understand why. I must be doing something wrong but I've no idea

Thanks for the help.
