That might be the answer. Using Distiller 8 the two .ps files you sent me took 12 seconds and 8 seconds.
Thank you Glenn: you have found the problem. Changing one line to /InlineTitles false def
makes it work in both PS2PDF.com
Default parameters will be reverted this evening, and cautionary words added to the manual.
Edit: I’ve had other troubles with /Helvetica-Bold
. Maybe the font is somehow misformed? Perhaps the default value of TitlesFont
should be one of the CMU fonts. Suggestions? Ideally widely available and included with Ghostscript as standard, bold or demi-bold, not italic, not oblique, condensed or demi-condensed, lining figures, and with all of CkDFGKNOSTVW0123456789 resting on the baseline and having the same height.
Edit edit: /TimesNewRomanPS-BoldMT
worked on online2pdf.com
but not on PS2PDF.com
. Sigh. Two different problems.
