Printout Report RFEM RSTAB

The printout protocol reacts quite slowly. How can I increase the performance?


The speed of the printout report depends primarily on the amount of data to be printed. If many pages are printed, a delay is expected.
Also, the number of graphics to be printed and in particular the graphic resolution play a crucial role.
When printing on a DIN A4 format, it makes little sense to print the graphics with the maximum resolution (5000 x 5000 pixels), especially since this compared to the standard resolution (1000 x 1000 pixels) requires a 25-fold file size.
When working in the printout log, the printer driver that is set as the default in the operating system's Control Panel is mainly accessed.
If these are outdated or faulty, this can also lead to delays. In this case, it makes sense to choose a different printer than standard.
In particular, virtual printers such as PDF24 usually lead to a significant increase in performance.
