I am having to wait at least 15-20 seconds for a PDF to open in 1.9.1. Is there a reason which this is happening? This was never an issue before in 1.8.5.

I should add that the files are from an ISO of a CD-ROM which I mount and simply open them as normal.

Hi @Sam Neil,

Sorry for the delayed reply. 

This is most likely a consequence of introducing PDF Passthrough. By default, when you place a PDF, it will be set to Passthrough rather than interpret(old method). Passthrough will generate a bitmap, which depending on the size/content of the pdf, will take longer than the old method. If you attach a few sample pdfs, I can have a look :)

I can't see any difference between 1.8 and 1.9. If anything, 1.9 was 1-2 seconds faster. 

Well the only difference with what you have and how I have it is, these PDFs were on a CD-ROM which have been made into an ISO and I load it and call it from the loaded ISO. I am not sure if that makes any difference.

Copy the file to the HDD/SSD and see if the loading time changes. 😏


The ISO files are on the HDD. All I do is double click on them and they are loaded as an extra (drive).
