Why use a PDF printer utility when you can use Save as PDF? (or is this with a run time file?)
Does save as PDF produce the same results?
Because the PDF it creates is too large and you cannot set compression options in Save As PDF. It does Save as PDF fine and keeps text as text, just the file is way too big.
Just a few more details:
FMP 12 Save as PDF takes several minutes and creates a 50MB file.
FMP 12, printing to PDF takes many minutes (a very long time) for a 72 page file which creates a 28MB PDF and 4.2GB Postscript file. All text and vector graphics are converted to image.
FMP 11, printing to PDF takes 1 min for the same data same layout, 72 pages, creates a 7MB file and 260MB Postscript file. Text is stil text, vector graphics are still vector graphics.
Interesting! This is something FM should add to their improvements: allowing the user to choose how image is compressed when using the script "export as pdf".
