Default Acrobat 7 Pro: how to reduce file size?


Last year, I created PDFs from InDesign CS for web-access. They were 752 kB for 28pp., including JPG covers, and 2.1 MB for 56pp., including JPG covers.

Since then, I have upgraded to Office 2008, although saving as earlier .doc files. I have also had cause to reinstall Acrobat.

I have created two InDesign files of 25 and 39 pp., which are generating PDFs of 1 MB and 34.2 MB, respectively (so far without any graphics or JPGs). I have no idea what has gone wrong.

The only obvious change is that I am using Bookman Old Style throughout, where last year I used TNR and Arial.

Any suggestions for reducing file size gratefully accepted. (I have tried the obvious options and one or two suggested by Acrobat Help.)

Thanks,

Guy

Unless you tell us what you've tried, how can we help you?

Default Acrobat 7 Pro: how to reduce file size?


OK, I have tried:

* Reduce File Size - Acrobat 6.0 and later
* PDF Optimizer - Fonts - there are none shown in either box!
* PDF Optimizer - Discard Objects
* Optimize for fast web view - in original file creation from InDesign CS and in PDF Optimizer

The one piece of information that strikes me as "odd" is that Audit space usage tells me that 98.79% of one of the files (the larger one at 34.2 MB) is taken up by Content streams.

I think we need to look back at the way you're creating the PDF from InDesign. EXACTLY what PDF settings did you choose for the 39 page file with no graphics that created a 34 Mb PDF file?
