Description of problem:
Before install FC1, but I already used openoffice.org and normally
convert my docs in pdf to send in emails, using print pdf convert
(because I get better results).
When today I start using openoffice.org from FC1 the conversion to pdf
is with a worst quality, we can read normally the pdf but before pdf
was much better.
After a few tests I uninstall openoffice.org rpms and install
OOo_1.1.0_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz from openoffice site and I back to
my beautifully and normal pdf .
So we have some problems with pdf convert in your version
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install openoffice.org-0-1.1.0-6 openoffice.org-i18n-0-1.1
2. write your CV
3. create pdf with print pdf converter
4. uninstall openoffice.org-0-1.1.0-6 openoffice.org-i18n-0-1.1
5. install openoffice.org from OOo_1.1.0_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz
6. open the same file
7. create other pdf with pdf converter
8. compare the 2 docs
Actual Results: the first doc is visible worst than the second
Expected Results: the 2 docs should be equal
pdf converter configured as
/usr/bin/gs -q -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile="(OUTFILE)" -
Is there any particular reason you're NOT using the new File->Export
as PDF functionality of 1.1? That should be used now rather then a
converter configued with spadmin. Does the problem still exist when
you use File->Export as PDF?
yes, the size of pdf is ten times larger
Which option did you check in the Optimize dialog of File->Export to
PDF? Screen, Print, ?
I add try all of them
I had try all of then
Please test with OOo rpms >= 1.1.0-20. This appears to be a font
problem, and OOo 1.1.0-20 and greater use fontconfig to find all
available fonts on your system. Therefore, you are more likely to get
nice, non-bitmapped fonts in your PDF with a newer OOo RPM.
closing due to inactivity on part of originator
last update release is openoffice.org-1.1.0-16 on fc1
Where or how I can find and test >= 1.1.0-20 ?
