Print Speed Very Slow

Thu May 25, 2017 2:21 pm

Hello to everyone,
I'd like to ask you a question about speed with PDF-XChange printer.

I'm working on a Windows Server 2016 Standard and i need to generate pdf with a virtual printer (like PDF-XChange, CutePDF, or something like that) but it's very very slow.
Example:
16 pages with text and photo = 2minutes for Spooling (700mb file in spooler)
After 2 minutes appear a pdf file (18mb).

I tried Microsoft Print to PDF, it's very fast, 1 minute for Spooling (250mb file in spooler) but i can't use that because i can't set an automatic default location.

My question is, how can i speed you pdf generator? Why creates a huge file in spooler (700-900mb) when at the end appear a file 18mb dimension.

I tried to set DPI 72 but nothing is changed.
Thank you

Hello 9overflow,

Welcome to our forums!

The print size and complexity will depend both on the application that sends the print job and the settings you've specified in our drivers.
Besides the DPI setting - please check if you have any compression and downsampling options under the "Compression" and "Graphics" sections of the driver's preferences window.

Also please make sure that you have the latest build of our drivers, as if you have an older one - it might be handlign the information worse than the latest - and result in the PDF file being generated slower.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello Stefan and thank you for your feedback.
In compression i have:
"Compress graphics" checked
"Compress text" checked
High Color/Grayscale Images "Compress using" Auto JPEG Quality 75%
Indexed Images "Compress using" auto
Monochrome Images "Compress using" Auto

In Graphics i have "No Downsampling and No Conversion" everywhere, i need to change it?

Drivers are V6.0

Can you tell us what application you are using for printing to PDF-XChange printer?

If it is a known application, can you please post an example of a file that takes a long time to print to a PDF?

Can it be that you are printing your information "as image" or do you have borders around your pictures with "dotted lines" (- - - - -)?

Best regards, and sorry for the additional questions.

Hello Willy, it's a management software created by some programmers friends, isn't a commercial software.

Hi 9overflow,

Does this happen with every application, or just this particular application?

Thanks,

Hi 9overflow,

Please do try with another application, as we'll need to know if it's specific to this single application. If it is, then it may be an issue with the way that this application communicates with our printer.
