you may well get more print aware readers by posting to the ReportLab users list


anyhow, so far as I am aware there's nothing in the reportlab toolkit which 
would make PDF's slow down between pages. It's not clear exactly when the delay 
occurs. Are you making the PDF on disk and then sending to the printer or are 
you somehow creating the PDF on the fly and streaming the result to the printer?

For some reason the generated PDF prints a page then pauses and then prints again until the document is done. I am printing up to 300 pages so this is rather cumbersome. Any PDF of comparable size that is not generated in ReportLab seems to print without any pauses in between pages. So I am wondering if there is something in the code which does this. Please advise if there are any solutions you know of or if someone else has even had this problem.
