Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 160857
'Saved Marked Pages' (7p) file is 10x as big as original file (42p)
Last modified: 2008-02-11 19:29:51 EST
Description of problem:
I have a 42 page document PDF file about 3.2 MB in size. When I 'save 7 marked
pages" from the document, the resulting PDF file is 38 MB in size. This does not
seem quite correct.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Ghostview (??) 2.8.0 from the Help->About page
Have not tried more than one extraction
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mozilla to http://www.nyse.com/about/publication/MagazineArchives.html
2. Click on 2004 May-June issue
3. Extract cover and pages 12-17 (takes a long time..)
4. Check sizes
[user1@hoho2 ~]$ ls -l /tmp/NYSE*
-rw------- 1 user1 user1 3207906 Jun 17 14:41 /tmp/NYSE05.2004_BigV7.pdf
[user1@hoho2 ~]$ ls -lt | head
-rw-r--r-- 1 user1 user1 38961188 Jun 17 15:08 NYSE-Vasella.pdf
Extracted file should be smaller..
This is with an updated Fedora Core 3. I have Fedora Core 4, but have not
installed it yet (too many comments in Fedora email..)
