Issues with Multilingual & Concatenate options

Post by atung » Wed Dec 03 2008

Hi Joan,

We are currently using Amyuni Converter 3.01a. There were some issues when we added the MultiLingual & Concatenate option into FilenameOptions. We were using the SMARTExport.FilenameOptionsEx = al_options

Original Option
al_options = NOPROMPT + USEFILENAME + EMBEDFONTS + LINEARIZE + FULLEMBEDFONTS + CONVERTHYPERLINKS + AUTOIMAGECOMPRESSION
- No issues with PDF file size
al_options = NOPROMPT + USEFILENAME + EMBEDFONTS + LINEARIZE + FULLEMBEDFONTS + CONVERTHYPERLINKS + AUTOIMAGECOMPRESSION + CONCATENATE
- No issue with documents more than one page when contenated.

New changes
MultiLingual Option
al_options = NOPROMPT + USEFILENAME + EMBEDFONTS + LINEARIZE + FULLEMBEDFONTS + CONVERTHYPERLINKS + AUTOIMAGECOMPRESSION + MULTILINGUAL
- The generated PDF file size was increased to almost double the size! Any idea why is this happening?

Concatenate Option
al_options = NOPROMPT + USEFILENAME + EMBEDFONTS + LINEARIZE + CONVERTHYPERLINKS + AUTOIMAGECOMPRESSION + MULTILINGUAL + CONCATENATE
- When FULLEMBEDFONTS is removed from the option list, the PDF file size will decreased to almost its normal size
- Added CONCATENATE option without the FULLEMBEDFONTS option will create some error when we try to concatenate more than one document.


Any idea on this? Thanks

Thanks Joan. I will test on version 3.03.

One more question:
1. SMARTExport.FilenameOptionsEx = al_options
al_options = NOPROMPT + USEFILENAME + EMBEDFONTS + LINEARIZE + FULLEMBEDFONTS + CONVERTHYPERLINKS + AUTOIMAGECOMPRESSION + MULTILINGUAL

Can I remove EMBEDFONTS from the list and remain FULLEMBEDFONTS ? Is the statement below valid ?
al_options = NOPROMPT + USEFILENAME + LINEARIZE + FULLEMBEDFONTS + CONVERTHYPERLINKS + AUTOIMAGECOMPRESSION + MULTILINGUAL

Thanks.

Hello

EmbedFonts will embed only the fonts that are used in the source document i.e. if you are using the Gothic font and only the letter R is used in the document, then only the letter R will be embedded in the document. Other letters will not be embedded in the document.

FullEmbedFonts will embed full fonts as opposed to embedding the fonts partially.

In your case above, you can safely remove the embedfonts option and retain the FullEmbedFonts.

Hope that helps
