  1. Hi, I am having difficulty publishing PDFs with usable file sizes of less than 10mb. I use Vectorworks Landmark 2018 and have explored both reducing DPI & downsampling image DPI and trying to reduce the file externally in Adobe Acrobat, however the best I can get is to around 12-15mb. I create landscape plans (in colour) with a variety of hatches and transparencies, however not overly complex. The only thing that seems to work is to rasterise the text, which then gets me down to only 2-3mb, however this is not ideal as I'd prefer to have the text searchable within the PDF. Does anyone have any tips or found any easy fixes to this? I have a feeling it's something to do with the plant tags appearing over hatches or potentially the plant transparencies which make the PDF size really blow up, but not sure how to resolve this without impacting on the visual quality of the plans.
