Just bumping this up to see if anyone has any suggestions or resolutions to this problem?
Another bump for the beginnning of the week. C'mon people, this cannot only be happeng to just me.
For clarifiication, you opened a banner in CS6 that was created in CS4... made NO changes or edits, simply re-saved that file as a CS6 version and saw an approx 20% increase in file size?
And this is the .swf file size we are talking about? How do the .fla file sizes compare?
When you say
exported from CS6
was this by "Publishing" the .swf, "Control/Enter" compiling or what?
Didn't look at the file size of the FLA, just the SWF as I didn't even necessarily resave the CS4 as CS6. No edits were made, I tried it with a simple open and publish just to make sure I wasn't doing anything to change the file and the resulting file was heavier (kb).
I looked through the size reports and saw that while image compression was better in the CS6 version, the fonts were all heavier than they were in the CS4 version and this put it over the 40kb limit.

You might check the embedded fonts and only embed the needed characters, not the entire character set.....could that be the diff?... CS4 lets you choose which characters (for example only lower case... no numberals, no puncuation) while CS6 by default embeds everything?
I don't have CS6 so I can't test myself.
I looked at that and the embedded character set is the same for both. I wish it was that easy
