Topic: Slowness with Preview (large documents)
Conf: (P-PDF) Mac Issues, Msg: 150449

We are facing a strange behavior on MacOS 10.4 for large PDF (+2000 pages) displayed with Preview: page browsing is *very* slow when one goes directly to the end of the document. If I ask for page 2100 for example, it takes more than one minute to display. The same problem occurs while using the bookmarks. Once a page has been viewed, it is displayed very fast, just as if Preview was using a sort of cache.
The PDF has been built on Windows with eDocPrinter PDF Pro. No problem with Adobe Reader 7 on Windows and Mac OS: the browsing with is perfectly fast.
The issue is the combination of eDocPrinter PDF Pro + large document + Preview.
Any clue? Ideas?
Many thanks,
