That sounds like a big file, but it's hard to know. Not all content will compress -- vector art, for example, and if you have a lot of styles or fonts in use, they will take up space, too.
You should probably run the PDF Optimizer in Acrobat to and do a usage audit to see what is using the space, then see if the optimizer can get rid of some stuff you don't need.
Hi Peter Spier.
With another suggestions and further reading i try to export the table as image and after importing them i try to export and the size file is more acceptable. So my problem is solved. But, now i have some doubts regarding the effect of tables produced in indesign in size file when exporting. Every designer already saw different reports with tables and graphics with reduced size files so i dont understand why this is happenning.
Do you have any idea?
Thanks in advance.
Without seeing the file in question I can't tell you why the PDF is large. I can tell you that I have a 448 page book with hundreds of tables and photos (mostly grayscale) that exported to a press quality PDF of about 35 mb.
Have you tried doing a Save As to remove useless change data before exporting? How about exporting to IDML to clean the file (see Remove minor corruption by exporting )?
I believe that table used to get the grid effect is the reponsible for PDF becoming too large. I tried save as, as well the export to IDML and then I export to PDF File and the result is the same, a huge file.
I tried without the table and the PDF size becomes smaller, so i think that the problem is the table. The table was created directly in Indesign.. I don't understand what's going on.
For now, this the way I solve the problem:
1 - Export the table to a .png file
2 - Import the file to the new indesign book
3 - Export the new book to pdf
The size of new PDF is acceptable, but I am doing something wrong. I could not expect that I have to do this everytime i have to use a table within my projects.
Can you show us a screen capture of a page showing the table?
I will get the files and use some storage solution and provide the link to you later , so you can take a look at.
