Saving from Publisher Version 2.0 Is Slower Than Version 1.0

Saving from Publisher Version 2.0 Is Slower Than Version 1.0

Q104497

-------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a
-------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY
=======

When saving documents from Microsoft Publisher version 2.0, you may
find that the time required to complete the save has increased
compared to a similar document being saved from Publisher version 1.0.
This increase is due, in part, to OLE version 2.0 (an object-linking-
and-embedding utility that comes with Publisher. Other contributing
factors may include saving with a preview and saving with a backup.

MORE INFORMATION
================

The following guidelines may be used in determining a general idea of
how much longer it should take to save a document from Publisher
version 2.0 as compared to a similar document from Publisher version
1.0.

20% larger      2 X slower ------  |  |  |  |  |  |  |
50% larger    2-4 X slower ---------  |  |  |  |  |  |
No Change       2 X slower ------------  |  |  |  |  |
20% larger    2-3 X slower ---------------  |  |  |  |
50% larger    5-6 X slower ------------------  |  |  |
20% larger    5-6 X slower ---------------------  |  |
50% larger   7-10 X slower ------------------------  |

The above changes in save speeds are approximations only. They may not
be applicable with respect to the change in file size if you're
looking at WordArt 1.0 objects in Publisher 1.0 being converted to
WordArt 2.0 objects in Publisher 2.0 (because WordArt 2.0 is much more
complicated and is of a much higher quality). In general, an average
WordArt 1.0 object becomes 10-15 times larger when it's converted to
WordArt 2.0. (Creating a WordArt 2.0 object from scratch results in an
identical size increase when compared to a like object created in
WordArt 1.0). The above values are much more applicable when using the
same class of objects between Publisher version 1.x documents and
Publisher version 2.0 documents.

When saving with a preview, the file size should grow by 5 to 6K and
require an additional three seconds to one minute to complete
(depending on the complexity of the first page). In some circumstances
the time to save with a preview may increase substantially more than
this. For example, if the first page contains a large 24-bit bitmap,
the save could take 10 to 15 minutes longer.
