Description of problem:
Exporting simple documents to PDF produces files that are about 8
times larger than 1.1.1 produces.  Has compression been turned off?  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openoffice.org-1.1.2-10.fc2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Export to PDF
2.
3.
    

Actual Results:  PDF produced is 8 times larger than 1.1.1 produces. 
When converted to Postscript using pdf2ps, the Postscript files are
the same size and the
documents display identically in, for example, xpdf.

Expected Results:  Much smaller PDF document.

Confirmed. Not only, exported PDF from spreadsheet cannot be displayed
with acroread 5, it gives errors like:

"There was an error processing a page. Too few operands in path."

"An unrecognized token '515.3m' was found."

caolanm->Bob T: Can you attach the original .sxw document to this issue ? 

When you use the "Export to PDF" there are options for size "screen
optimized (smallest size)", "print optimized" (the default) and "press
optimized". If you choose screen optimized do you get a smaller PDF
equivalent to the 1.1.1 PDF ?

The .doc file that ooffice 1.1.1/1.1.2 produces different size pdfs for.

I've had similar results with other documents. Helvetica (a standard font) iis
used in an attempt to minimize the size of the PDFs.

  No.

Comment 7 Andrea Pasquinucci 2004-12-17 13:42:13 UTC
I am now on FedoraCore 3 and the dimension problem persists: look at
this test with oo.1.1.2 and "screen optimized":

-rw-rw-r--   1  42K Dec 17 14:33 test-ps2pdf.pdf
-rw-rw-r--   1 170K Dec 17 14:32 test-oopdf.pdf

the first one has been obtained first printing to a file and then
running ps2pdf, the second directly exporting from OO. To display with
xpdf the files look identical, but acroread _cannot_ display
test-oopdf.pdf with message "Fatal System Error: Raise at top of
Exception Stack".
