Use sophisticated formatting for PDF in DNG


If you are using the document generation UI in DNG’s 5.0.x and older to generate PDF documents the default option is to use RRDG’s  so called “performance driver“.  This driver is legacy and has far fewer capabilities than the alternative “sophisticated formatting” driver.

You can read more on the history of the PDF driver  in RRDG and why we kept the legacy driver but at this time there are no reasons to use it except the fringe scenario where you need to create a 20.000 pages data dump in PDF.

Considering the performance and quality of the output produced by the “sophisticated driver” you should always use that driver. This is enforced in DNG 6.0 by making “sophisticated formatting” the default option for the PDF output.
