      Description

      Using native format for pdf files on OsX produces much smaller and better pdf files, for example the text becomes selectable.
      There should be an easy way (API) to use it, because setting the setOutputFileName to pdf automatically sets the format to PdfFormat even if it was set to NativeFormat earlier and on OsX it results much worse pdfs.
