I am running Adobe ACROBAT PRO V. 10.1.16 on an iMac running on OSX 10.11.4 w 8 GB memory. I have been using the software for years, but only on this computer for a few months, since I bought the hardware. I am not having trouble with reducing file size on the pdf's I create.
If I take an Office document, (Word or Power Point, for example) and save as a pd, it used to be consistently possible to reduce the file size either by:
1. Going to FILE>SAVE AS>REDUCED SIZE PDF or,
2. Going to FILE>SAVEAS>OPTIMIZED PDF.
Now neither of these works anymore. I can still go to those commands, and implement them, but the software just does nothing - nothing happens - no little bar telling me it is doing things like it used to, no new file created where it asked me to store it - NOTHING!
Would love to get this (for me) critical feature back again. Is it s function of the hardware? Something this software doesn't like about the OS?
