Printing delay after hiting print button

Hi Krystof:

First of all, i've implemented a link on my developes to execute primarelly Sumatra instead of Adobe Reader, the reason is because it's perfect: simple, light weight, and high speed opening pdf file.-

I don't know if this is an issue or not.-

After hiting print button (on print menu), it delays up to 20s to start printing; no mather if is on sheet or a complex selection.- I've tested on several printers (ink jet and laser's).- On lases no mather how much memory it have, delay is the same.-

I apreciate any help you can give me.-

With regards.

Same issue here,for opening is superfast, instead printing (more than 1-4) pages or complex document it make your pc freeze and start it

Easy - its because the latest version of Sumatra prints *all* files as an image. Even 2-3 page documents can be *huge* when convewrted to an image and sent to the printer. This can cause printing to be *very* slow.

Solution? Revert back to an older version of Sumatra (3.0), and I'll bet $$$ your problem disappears.
