It seems there's no response when transfer large word file - say, 200 pages.

And for a single page of word file, for example, 30k, the pdf file would be 300k, it is too large for disk space...

Well, anyway, the pdf quality is pretty good compared with other pdf creator...

Is there some reason?

I'm not sure I understand exactly the problem. You tried converting a 200 pages word document to a pdf with dopdf and it didn't work? If this is the case, make sure you have the latest version of dopdf installed and if it still occurs send the document to us for testing at info[at]dopdf[dot]com

I'm posting here in case anyone else has this question. The file in discussion contained only Chinese text, so even if the file was about 30Kb, the resulting PDF had 300Kb.

This happens because, being in Chinese, the text doesn't contain the standard PDF characters, so in the PDF we have to include a subset of the font folder with all the characters used in the document. This subset is quite large, which pushes the PDF to 300kb. This doesn't mean that each converted chinese document will be 10x times larger, just that its size will be increased by the size of the subset.
