Results from Linux:
Export to PDF: 50sec
Print to PDF: 1min 30sec

Windows takes a long time with both methods, didn't bother to wait.

Telesto: can you test again? Maybe there is a difference between our versions of Windows (you have 8.1). Maybe there was a regression, but 4.4.7 took a long time as well.

Did you test with version 4.0? Did it take the same amount of time vs. 7.1?
