Symptoms

When using AutoVue in order to convert or print a PDF file to PDF you will notice that the output file generated by AutoVue is bigger in size when compared with the original PDF used to perform the conversion or the print operation. For example when using the PDF sample which has a size of 200 KB the output file generated from a convert or print operation can grow up to 1.8 MB. Because of this issue the output generated will be nine times bigger than the original file size.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open a PDF file using AutoVue.
  2. Convert the file to PDF.
  3. Notice the size of the ouput file is nine time bigger than the original file size.
