This is a very interesting observation that I was previously unaware of (or
We are using both pdfCreator and Win10’s “Print to PDF” printers - pdfCreator
for pre-Win10 machines.
It switches according to the OS version.
Discovered a couple of days ago that the Win10 printer creates huge pdf files
in comparison to pdfCreator.

Open 4D first.
Choose “File -> Open -> Open Local Database.
After highlighting the database, do the following:
On PC, click the drop down menu icon found on the “Open” button
On Mac, click the “Options” button at bottom left.
For both platforms a drop menu then appears. Choose
Don't know of a key combination but you could probably could do this
without a mouse.
Select "Local Database" from the File menu and you'll see a dropdown in the
lower right corner of the open file dialog (lower left on OS X). You can
choose between compiled, interpreted, or MSC though
I set a database to run compiled, I now want to open it interpretedly.
I can not load the database because there are uncompiled components.
Is there a key combination which will allow me to choose the how to
open the database (compiled or interpretedly)?

The SET ABOUT command is not used in this app.
When testing David’s suggestion, I had also tested running the service both

pdf printer driver and 32/64 Bit 4D plugin (v17 too ;-)
no boring update messages
much smaller pdfs than the win 10 built in driver

I agree that PDF Creator is terrible on the server. I tried it briefly and
it was a headache. In addition to the points Lutz made doing any printing
Server side restricts you to a single print job at a time. That can become
a problem - you have to write your own print job que. Plus PDFC can throw
Tested on Windows 4D v17.0
When I click with my mouse in a text string (enclosed by double quotes) in the
4D method editor, the cursor position is often wrong a few pixels
Then it looks like the cursor is after character Y, but it IS after character X
(1 character before Y)
I second the statement below. We did some testing with PDF Creator in the
Past and were not convinced. Especially we wanted to use it on the server

First, it was not stable.
Second, we had to explain which software we want to install on the

Thanks for your tip.
I have conducted the test as per your suggestion and from the results of the
test, it does not appear to be a firewall problem.
a) 4Dv15.5 (32-bit) - server app launched directly - database server appears
