Hi All

I seem to have a problem with the Journal I publish.

I prepare it in Scribus on my Kubuntu 9.10 machine. When
finished I export as a PDF. However because of the resulting size of
the file I then transfer this to my Windows machine. Open with FoxIt
PDF Reader and select Print to PDF Creator. By selecting 72 point (as
recommended by Jluc) I get a nice viewable image AND a reduction of
file size of about 75%. This is the file I publish.

The majority of the people who get the file have no problem with it BUT
a significant number are reporting problems such as only the first page
opening, program freezes, program takes several minutes to open each
page etc etc!!

Can anyone offer a solution for this? The file works perfectly here for
me and as I said MOST of the people who get it also have no problems.

The only thing I wonder about is the PDF export version setting in
Scribus. It is currently on 1.4 - should I try 1.3 at all???

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Ian Whitfield.

Maybe an encoding issue.
