Did you do a simple SAVE AS PDF? This is needed to reclaim space.
All fonts used have to be fully embedded, so this adds space; beware of using big fonts or multiple fonts or styles.
Thank you "Test Screen Name"!
I opened my finished PDF form in Acrobat X Pro and saved it by "Save as PDF..." and the file size did not change at all. Hmmm.
All Fonts are embedded but we DO use our company fonts in different variations and styles. For the form fields we just use "Arial".
Here is a link to one of our PDF forms: http://mounting-systems.de/tl_files/pdf/ENG_Planungshilfen/FO-20102EN-TP_In-roof.pdf
Do you have any other idea?
Thanks a lot!
Thanks for your reply!
So it's the fonts that eat up more than half of the file size. What is "Document Overhead"? How can I reduce these two "space consumers"?
I doubt you will reduce that very much. Over 400K is a complete embedded copy of Arial. Consider using Helvetica (a 'magic' font which won't be embedded) instead.
