Files Size Inflation (monstruous !) - Additional Details

I tested right now the performance of PdfCreator - 300 dpi on the very same web articles I already printed before. The size is now more than tenfolded : for instance, 178 bytes previously, now 2,100 bytes!! Terrifying! The change of version or 1.2.0 has no size effect at all (all things being equal - regarding the features). Pretty sure its something linked to Windows 7...

Help please. Thanks. Vincent


I encountered the same problem. File that prints in Windows 7/32 is 2 MB in size; the same file printed on Windows 7/64 is 57 MB in size.

Something very strange is happening for me on my 64 bit PC. Are you running Win7/64?


Hi Larry,

Right, I'm on Win7/64 like you!

Bingo! Sure, here is the snag.

I'm waiting desperately for a solution, I suppose you too.


Talking about inflation should be given more focus and evaluation. There could be many issues with regard to banks and financial system of the country. It gives clear views that no matter what happen, the system always go round to what we are expecting.The Federal Reserve has a lot of responsibilities, including maintaining the supply of credit in the nation's economy. The Fed declared recently that it does not intend to stiffen the credit supply yet. Part of the Fed's duties, of which there are many, is to monitor the supply of available lending capital and altering it accordingly to best fit the needs of the economy as a whole. The central bank of the nation is being pressured to look into reigning in the credit supply, but insists it will not until the economy is in better shape. I found this here: Federal Reserve not planning to reign in credit supply yet.


I just solved the file size bug with PdfCreator vs.Windows 7 64 bits!

Under Firefox 4, then under options/advanced/browsing/, I unchecked the "utiliser l'accélération graphique matérielle si disponible" - sorry, I don't have the exact translation, but I suppose you can find it easily...

Here is the official Mozilla source (in French too) :

Have no means to find the English equivalent...

The average size is now between 80 and 350 bytes for a normal web page...

Could you test this hint and tell me ?

Have a good day!


 Hi, I have the same problem with Google Chrome but don't see any possibility of changing settings the way you did in Firefox (which I also used until recently). (I also speak French, so that's not a problem either). Does anyone know how to alter Chrome.
