Keith:

I believe the PDFWriter function generates PDF
files based on the WMF screen image of your file,
and is subsequently a less controllable product.
Distiller, on the other hand, uses a Postscript
version of your file, and allows finer control
over the resulting PDF file (resolution, sampling,
font embedding etc.).

Hello all,

Excuse the dumb question, but what is the
advantage of using Distiller over
PDFwriter to create .PDF files?
Does using Distiller result in smaller .PDF files?
Is this the main
advantage?

Thanks,

Keith
