This is so odd that it sounds like "user error" -- we're all subject to

Make sure you haven't inadvertently limited your resolution in the PDF

Make sure you are indeed looking at the correct PDF. I've had to pretend 
to start up PDF Export just to verify the correct folder where the PDF 
went...sometimes it surprises.
