Acrobat 8.1.4 - Slow to print graphically intensive documents

By Alphax45 ·
When printing a graphically intensive PDF file using Acrobat 8.1.4 to a HP MFP device the size in the queue becomes 21 MB for 13 pages.

This is of course slow to print ? about 1 page every 45 seconds

Is there any way to speed this up?

PDF files that are mostly text are fine

Thank you

A .PDF file has all of its code embedded within it ...

That's what makes it Portable Document Format.

I don't quite understand what you are asking.

If the .PDF is graphically intensive then how you could speed it up but retain the graphical content is beyond me. Is 45 seconds really a long time to wait per page? In total it's not even 10 minutes.

You could always go and make a coffee, take a break.

Change print time settings......

At print time, using File/Print and bringing up the print dialog, click the the Advanced button in the lower left corner. Inside, put a check in the box next to 'Print as Image'. This will decrease the size of the spooled print document and speed up the print process considerably.
