    It’s a relatively basic form living at https://www.linkintegratedhealth.com/sign-up/membership.

    I am having an issue where it takes upwards of 20 seconds to merge the entry into a PDF when the download link is clicked.

    Maybe it is something on the server level, if so, please advise and I will adjust.

    I love this software, just want to optimize its processing.

    Thanks.

    I also want to note that no email sending is done with this form.

    Size matters! Your PDF form is 4MB in size. You’ll need to optimize the original PDF to reduce the size. A 5-page PDF with a couple of images should be no more than 1.5MB and could be smaller than 500k.

    The size of the PDF can be increased by the embedded font, images, and the original page optimization. Upload the original PDF here if you’d like us to take a look at resizing options.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your input. I have just sent you the raw PDF file.

    I appreciate your advice.

    Regards,

    We reduced the size of the PDF by using Acrobat’s “Combine Files” function which resulted in a file size of 156k. Upload the file to the plugin, be sure to use the same filename which will overwrite the existing file and all will continue to work without the need to remap all the fields.

    Let us know if this change reduces the PDF creation time.

    Hey Admin!

    That was a decent tip – thanks for the advice. It took the processing down to about 1/3 of what it once was. Wow – about 8 seconds to finalize, not bad. Is there any way that you think I can get this tuned even faster? I think this would make for a great support article at the very least! Thanks again.

    You may also find some speed increase by lowering the Formidable signature’s multiplier, see this post for instructions.

    Our only other suggestion is to upgrade to the replacement beta version of PRO2PDF, called E2Pdf, once we release it sometime this month. You can signup here.
