    InDesign exporting PDFs much larger than in the past

    myDavey Level 1

      My company is going now for a reprint on several books

      When I exported the files to PDF, the files are 3x the size than they were in the past!

      I've created these files several times over the last 5 years in the same exact way and they were always the same - only now for the first time they are triple the size!


      • The last time I made these PDFs was in 2015 with InDesign CS6
      • I use an export preset, so I know all settings are exactly the same as in the past
      • The preset uses Acrobat 4 (PDF 1.3) - mainly because I use a transparency flattener preset
      • I am now using InDesign CC 2015.4
      • Windows 10 Pro 64bit


      Any ideas?
