Hello wbgookin,

That's strange - the quality for me was MUCH worse than before. I also noticed that the PDF files were about half the size that they were before. So, at least in the one I got, it seems like the compression went UP.

I have just added a new property : "PDFCompression"
You can choose between 0 and 99 for the quality compression.

The higher you set (99), the best quality and less compression you have.

Thierry,

When I print a JPG or BMP image of something with text, the direct print is perfect, but the image in the PDF looks rough and "jagged". The images look like they're being resampled in the PDF file. At what resolution does the image get saved in the PDF? Can this be user adjustible?

The compression artifacts are now gone, though. :)

But I just noticed that if I try to resize an image more than a certain amount, VB crashes with a "memory could not be 'read'" error. I'll send you an example.

By the way, the drawarc works fantastic now!

Thanks for all your hard work - it's definitely appreciated! I love this preview control...

It is only for PDF? :-(

I guess your using different compression routines for different outputs. Is there anything you can do for JPG quality?

It will be in the next one.
Bill has found a final small memory leak, that I have fixed.
All should be released next week.

NB : I still have an help file to verify.
