LaTeX problem - bullet points/lists and PDFs watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm very, very new to LaTeX and reading/learning about it as I get the chance.
    I don't need to know how to use it ('yet', perhaps) but managed to do a pretty good job of my CV.

    I'm having difficulty with PDF output, in terms of font, I think. DVI output seems fine.

    The basic structure of the document is headings and lists - bullet points. The problem is with second-level lists, by that I mean lists under a bullet point (specifically a list of responsibilities/skills after employer name/title).
    As this is a second-level list, it does not use bullet points but dashes - they're the problem. They aren't coming through properly on the PDF output file - they are very feint.

    This wasn't always the case - the PDF from the older file in the folder, made with the same file and program is normal.
    In the TeXworks PDF viewer the dashes appear in bold (compared to the old PDF output file) but in Adobe Reader, Acrobat and Google Docs they're feint and barely visible.
    I don't think I've changed anything on the system since making the original file.

    The layout/what I mean (+ represents bullet point):

    + John's Corner Store, Lapland
    Head of merchandising
    Responsible for...

    The bits in red aren't coming through properly in the output file.

    I've reinstalled MiKTeX and Adobe Reader (default PDF reader) but nothing's helped. I've also tried other editors (Texmaker and TexnicCenter).

    Any ideas?
Did you get less than your required grades and still get into university?
