[Scribus] Generating PDFs

I've created a 9 page document, three column, with about
10 figures.  The majority of the text is in Times New Roman,
with a couple additional fonts for titles, headings, or figures.

When I generate a PDF from Scribus, the resulting file is large.
Only the heading fonts are embedded and the text is compressed.
The PDF is more than 2 times the size of the Scribus file and
opens slowly in Acroread.  Printing from Acroread is very slow
and frequently fails to print (I think that the printer runs
out of memory).

If I turn off text compression, the size of the PDF is
much larger, about 25 times the size of the Scribus file.

Any suggestions on what causes this or how to correct
these problems?
