Limiting Acrobat file sizes

Limiting Acrobat file sizes

Limiting Acrobat file sizes

We are having a problem with acrobat file sizes. We write documents in Word7 (also include tables, corel graphics and screen shots). Some of these files when made into PDF for distribution are smaller than the original file but some are much larger. How can I limiit the sizes of .pdf files?. Is it more econonomical to convert form pagemaker?

You might try (if you've not already done so) the Adobe sight. Go to www.adobe.com, then on the left of the page select 'Tips' under 'News & Features' (about midpage), _then_ select 'Acrobat' from a list on the left. This will bring you to a page with tips that include

Finessing PDFs For The Web
Laura Urban Perry gets into the nitty gritty of preparing PDFs for the Web in Acrobat Exchange(TM).
(PDF: 76 KB / 2 pages)

which allowed me to arrange for about a 20% reduction on some of my PDFs, and almost 50% on one of them.

Know that doesn't answer your question, but it might help to address the problem.

Make a good day . . .
