Definitely positive font installation experience, but not without caveat

Dear all,

lured by the instant rewards after installing a new font with which covers Cyrillic and Greek in addition to Latin
(Linux Libertine), I gave it a try and also installed a CJK font in the
very same manner.

This is the command line I use to compile my file after I applied Deri's
suggestion to pdf.tmac:

$ groff  -k -ms -Tpdf > multitest.pdf

You see the attached source file.

I noticed a bit of latency while compiling *and* while displaying the
result --- so very untypical of groff.

When I wanted to attach the pdf result, I understood, why. The pdf file
is a whopping 25745276 bytes big.

The resulting pdf file contains one huge "stream" object approx. 100,000
lines long. I think this is the CJK glyph data.

Does groff have any concept of storing only those glyph shapes in the
target file which are really required by the document?

Thank you,

Best regards,


Dr. Oliver Corff
