When I have a word document that is 10M after I convert to PDF its 55M. Why is this? people also tell me when they view on there computers things are distorted.... Is my software pdf the file at a very high resolution? Is there a resolution setting?
Are you on Windows or Mac? How are you creating the PDF from Word?
If you are on Windows, and use the Acrobat Ribbon.
You can verify where the extra megabytes in the PDF you created comes as well as try and reduce it using Acrobat.
