    PDF without extensive data "Document Overhead"

    MarioMari Level 1



      How do I create in Indd a PDF without additional data "Document Overhead"? These data are very comprehensive and greatly increase the file size (68 MB)


      I use the PDF sets to create the file:

      In Adobe Acrobat Pro I can get rid of these data by optimization of the document and reduces the file to size 16 MB!?
