    Large size PDF produced even with low settings

    Arnaud_V Level 1

      I use InDesign CS4 6.0.6 with Mac Os 10.6.7.

       

      When I want to export to PDF, large files are produced whatever the settings are. The page contains only text and the PDF weights 5 Mb.

       

      I copied the layout to another document and the file size of the exported PDF is 376 kb.

       

      I tried to export the document via Inx format and re import it in CS4 : no change.

       

      I resetted the Preferences files : no change.

       

      I installed the demo version of 5.5 : no change.

       

      I tried to modify the preset with very low requirements (72 dpi for the images) : no change.

       

      It seems that Indesign does not take into account the PDF options I modify.

       

      I had no problem with this previously.

       

      I don't want to use Distiller since it gives me more work.

       

      Any ideas appreciated
