Re: Is my Acrobat up to speed?
I'm being asked to justify my request for computer/software upgrade so I am hoping my colleagues out there can give me an idea about whether my creation of pdf files is tardy.
I'm running Win XP (SP3) on a 3.4Ghz machine with 1 Mb RAM. Applications are MS Word 2003 and Acrobat 8. All 32-bit of course
My document is 123 pages and it has 264 linked .png images all with an average size of 70-80 Kb.
Acrobat is set Basic standard with no bookmarks or links, no Word cross-ref features and no heading bookmarks.
And this takes 7min 32 sec from clicking [Start] to seeing new opened pdf file.
Now, is my system slow? Or do others see same performance with similar parameters? And can anyone with later setup (64-bit, Win 7, MS Word 2010, Acrobat X etc) give me an idea of how fast I could expect to raise this too.
Meanwhile I have another 5 similar docs to put to pdf so that'll keep me happy till lnch time at least.
Thanks in advance
David (the plodder)
