Google Drive PDF viewer is so bad in displaying color
If I upload it to Google Drive, then view it on the browser. The color scale is downgraded so much, as attached figure.
It seems Google Drive PDF viewer can't handle color well. Please fix it.
Chrome PDF viewer works fine. Maybe Google can use it in Google Drive.
One curious thing is that the colors display correctly for the first 2 seconds or so, then it switches to the low-colors view.
Did anyone at Google *ever* test their PDF viewer?
It seems that every-time we attempt to share a professional-grad PDF document with colleagues, Google Drive finds some way to provide a bad experience.
Please help, Google!
What's weird is sometimes the document first opens with all the colors being nice and then it gets all ugly. What is the point? I could understand making it ugly for fast upload but it seems to do the opposite...
FYI: I discovered it is even worse. If you "OPEN" the preview to view supposedly the full PDF, the sickly color banding remains. (OR good image for a second, then turns to sickly image.) Basically, at least in my experience with the file that appears in the QT movie above, it is impossible to correctly view a pdf if it is rendered from Google (Drive).
So... do Google folks pay attention to these discussion? Is there a chance this maybe improved?
