larger PDF files using RB12

edited May 2010 in Devices

I am using D2009 with RB12.0 (build 162).

When I created pdf documents with the previous versie RB 11.08 I got pdf
documents with a size of 30kB per page.
Since I use version RB12 the pdf files are between 300 and 400 kB per page.

As my customers most of the time print 20 to 30 pages you can see the
problems arising when emailing the pages.

In the meantime nothing has been changed to the program.
I have tried to set CompressLever to clMax but this does not make the file
any smaller.

Any ideas?

    Hi Andre,

    Be sure the Report.PDFSettings.FontEncoding is set to feANSI and that you
    are not embedding any fonts (EmbedFontOptions property). This is the
    default setting and will ensure that reports are exported the same as they
    were in earlier versions of ReportBuilder.

    Thanks Nico for your quick repsonse. It works.
    After I had set EmbedFontOptions:=[], the example pdf file was reduces from
    2MB to 63Kb.
