Generating PDF Troubleshooting

Hello. I have been attempting to make maps of the fire regions that we are mostly working in. I am able to generate the PDF files, but when I import them into Avenza I am not able to see fine detail when I zoom in? The maps are blurry and wont let me zoom into areas of fine detail. My main goal is to create a fine detailed map with roads, Hydrography, and mountain ranges. These maps will be used in the air and GPS location is needed on the maps! Can anyone help?

    The scale you're using is huge - 1:450k. You need to cover less with each map, and/or create larger PDFs (e.g. 18x24, note that this is a paid feature).

    The NAIP imagery has detail down to approximately 1:8k, but for traditional topo map usage I've found that somewhere between 1:24k and 1:50k is a good scale for importing into Avenza.
