Default Re: export to pdf problems

The issue was resolved.
This goes back to what a PDF is for: it is for printing. The PDF export is a high resolution export. Showing a PDF page (e.g. letter size or DIN A4 size) on the screen compresses the page down to ~40%. Because of the high resolution and because the staff lines are thin, a staff line looks grey because usually a monitor has 96 dpi (dots per inch). A printer for a reasonaly good print quaity offers 300 dpi, 600dpi or 1200 dpi. Printing a page where the staff lines look grey on a screen print the staff lines black on paper.

It is also important that when adding text only to the page format, the Page Text from the Layout tab should be used. This scales accordingly. Modifying a PDF after the export may create a different scaling which may turn certain elements into grey.
