    InDesign 2015.4 exports huge PDFs

      Greetings all,

       

      1. Indesign CC 2015.3 Release

      Export 13-page (A2 size) file containing a mix of text and links to native Illustrator (.ai) graphics using "Smallest File Size" PDF preset (for emailing proofs).

      The resulting PDF is 744K.

       

      2. InDesign CC 2015.4 Release

      Export the same file with the same PDF preset.

      The resulting PDF takes much longer to export, and the resulting PDF is 11.3 MB.

       

      3. Indesign CC 2015.3 Release

      Export the same file with a custom PDF preset to create a high-res PDF for print.

      The resulting PDF is 11.7 MB.

       

      4. InDesign CC 2015.4 Release

      Export the same file with the same custom PDF preset.

      The resulting PDF is 16.7 MB.

       

      Has anyone else seen this? Is there a solution, or do I need to go back to the 2015.3 release? I can live with large files for print, but I don't want to email ginormous low-res proofs to clients.

       

      Thanks,

      Michele
