I'm facing a problem with a PDF generated with OpenOffice. I created simple PDF with "blabla" and saved it as PDF in OO (see attachment). When printing this document, the printing job becomes very big (> 10 MB) and takes a lot of time.

The problem seems to be that the text is printed as image. If I export the print to MDI (Microsoft Document Imaging), I can see that the result is not a mdi with scalable text, but a image (which does not scale).
Note: "Print as image" is deactivated.

I also noted that the font enconding in my PDF (-> Document properties) is "builtin", while being "ANSI" for a PDF generated in Distiller.

Do you have any idea what I could try to avoid this problem? Maybe you also have some hints about the technical details of the font encoding.

Thank you for your help,
