Been looking everywhere on the web for a solution to this. Is it possible to export a PDF from Fireworks and maintain the vector compression instead of bitmap compression? To have a legible file when printed I am having to upscale the res to 300DPI and this creates massive PDFs when compressed with bitmaps.
Looked at exporting in different formats and importing into other vector software (i.e. Illustrator) but this does seem a lot off grief just to have a vector export.
Any help/advice would be very helpful.
Fireworks doesn't support vector compression in it's PDF export at this time. All I can suggest is to submit this as a feature request to the wishlist, which - ironically - is not working right at this moment.
This is one of my biggest pet peeves as well, so I went ahead and submitted a feature request as well.
