yes , its a common issue ...
try disaling advanced printing features, that helps a bit, it reduces the spool file
We are experiencing major issues when printing PDFs to a number of MFDs, as it takes a significant amount of time for a PDF document to spool. We have a range of models including 72xx, 73xx and 74xx models.
It does seem to be an issue within the core driver, and a Xerox analyst has tested many multiple driver versions, including as many model, release and language versions as possible. He also advised that a postscript driver did very little to speed up the spooling.
Does anyone have any ideas how we could resolve this problem? Thanks
