PDF Export

Post by Patrick » Wed Apr 20, 2016 4:38 am

I noticed when I still had a license for SMO 2016 Std, as well as with this FreeOffice 2016 suite, that when I export a certain .tmd (or .doc, or whatever) to PDF, for that particular 400 page document, the PDF is around 3.29mb. When I export the same file (from .tmd in this case) in TextMaker 2012, the PDF is around 2.6mb. The same exact document, but the newer versions of TextMaker produce a larger PDF file using the same PDF settings. This seems to be consistently so. Did anything change about the way TextMaker export PDFs in TextMaker 2016 vs 2012?

To test, I would suggest a largish document (perhaps with some images in it). Export to PDF with TM2016 and with TM2012.

I can't find any difference when I examine the 2 PDF's. They appear to be of the same quality to the eye, so I can't figure out why the 2016 version is bigger.

Could you please send us a sample .tmd file to forum(at)softmaker.de referring to that thread? Thank you!

Ah, I'm sorry Sven, I exported the PDF's with default settings on both FreeOffice TextMaker 2016, as well as TextMaker 2012 Pro, but I overlooked that the 2016 version of TextMaker PDF Export has an additional feature (selected by default), namely "Create Tagged PDF." This accounts for the increase in size. Thanks/Sorry!
