I'll try to make a small summary to explain what I did and what are the
results at this point.
1. The original.pdf file was generated directly from Scribus (1.3.7).
The size of the file is approx. 9 MB. Text in the document is considered
as a text and can be highlighted, copied/pasted and searched.
If a Scribus 1.4 is used a text is not recognized "correctly".
2. I opened original.pdf in both Evince and Okular. I tried to save
original.pdf as a copy but the output pdf file was the same in size.
3. I printed original.pdf into .ps file (both in Evince and Okular).
Afterwards .ps file was transformed into .pdf again. To do so a ps2pdf14
A new.pdf made by means of Evince.ps was shrunk to 1,5 MB without any
loose in quality.
A new.pdf made by means of Okular.ps was enlarged to 11 MB
Unfortunately text in both versions of new.pdf wasn't considered as a
regular text any more. However it could be highlighted, pasting and
searching didn't work.
4. I changed (manually) a file extension from original.pdf to
original.ps. Afterwards I used a ps2pdf14.
I got a new.pdf file a little bit bigger then previously (2,3 MB) but
with a regular text.
Any comments on that?
