I have created a pdf file with the Adobe PDF-"printer" from an original Word document. The Word document contains image components from Visio, which have been copy-pasted into the Word document (for instance a UML diagram). While the performance in Word is OK, the performance in Adobe Reader (AR) is not. The image components render real slow in AR, sometimes taking a minute to render an A4 of image components.
Question: Is there some way to make the Adobe PDF-"printer" convert the copy-pasted image components into real images (i.e. not vector graphics)? Or is there some other performance improvement I could do?
I would also be happy to know how it can run so smooth in Word but so sluggish in pdf-format :)
