Hi i need one solution for the PDF`s with very complex vector´s inside .
The PDF is small format, but this will mounted on one sheet size 1000x700, and after send this job to metadimension it take 2 to 3 hours to output the job on CTP .
My question is what can be done on PDF or application to make it more easy , without convert the vector in image

I ripped your job using our TaskForce Rip to a 1200 DPI zoomable proof in just under a minute.

I'd love to know if this looks the way you expect it to:

Zoomable Proof

You can roll your mouse wheel to zoom in and out and click and drag to move around in the image.

I did not put this into a larger layout, so I'm not sure this is a valid timing comparison, but size typically is relative.
