After upgrading to the XChange Std V7 printer driver, I printed a document from Word that was one page long, consisted of text only (no graphics), and used the regular, bold, and italic members of the Windows 10 Calibri font. The resulting PDF created by the V7 driver was >400 KB, with almost all that size taken up by the embedded fonts. When I uninstalled the V7 driver, reinstalled the V6 driver, and re-created the PDF using the V6 driver, the resulting size was 83 KB. When I print the same file to PDF using the free PDFCreator printer from pdfforge.org, the resulting size was 88 KB, essentially the same as with the V6 XChange driver. Something is wrong with the efficiency of the font embedding in V7 of the XChange Std driver. I pay attention to the size of the PDFs that I create; I like them to be as small as possible. Please investigate and resolve. In the meantime, I will continue to use the V6 driver.
I have attached the relevant files.
Thank you for your consideration.
