Slow PDF generation when using SVG

Hi all,

 

When saving a FM book as PDF, there is enormous difference in the time it takes, depending on whether I refer to PNG or to SVG files. With PNG, the process takes 20 to 30minutes, but with SVG, provided FM does not hang indefinitely, more than 4 hours.

I noted that the TPS file created during the process is way bigger when using SVG.

 

I scripted the process and use GetSaveDefaultParams(). Are there parameters in my script (or settings in FrameMaker) I could change to improve the situation with SVG?

 

My FrameMaker version is 13

 

Best regards

Fabian

My recollection is that SVG handling was improved in some later release. If you have a naive Windows machine available, you could download a newer {trial} version of FM, and see if the performance has changed.
