Hi Evan,

I usually export as a ps (with the print option) and then convert to
pdf if needed (usually the size is much smaller in pdf).

I was under the impression that mzc would compile the module *and any dependencies* into the .exe file so that I wouldn't need to distribute a collects directory along with the .exe and .dll's.  Is there some magic flag that I'm missing or is this just the nature of the beast?
