Recently upgraded from FrameMaker 2015 to 2019 version and have noticed a significant decrease in publishing speed.
With my book in FM 2015, it took approx. 320 seconds to publish to HTML5.
Upon opening the same files in Framemaker 2019, and using the same publishing settings this process took approx. 980 seconds to complete.
I also tried publishing the book with default settings, instead of the .sts file I would typically use, but this took longer again (1290 seconds).
I noticed there was a difference in how images were published between versions 2015 and 2019. In order to instruct FrameMaker 2019 not to resize my images upon publishing i.e. take a 900 x 500 image and convert to 540 x 300 etc, I had to input the preferred image width and height to be 0pt. Whereas in Framemaker 2015 you simply had to uncheck the use Distiller to generate images.
I think graphics are the culprit for the long publishing time as the documents are quite image-heavy.
Any input on how I can resolve this publishing speed issue, or alter the way images are published would be appreciated.
Have something to add?
