Print to PDF file size difficulties




Having used a VW trial version we have now purchased a licensed VW Fundamentals & I'm having difficulty with pdf file sizes.

Using the Export to PDF (which I cannot do on my Fundamentals) the file size was much smaller than creating a pdf with 'print to pdf'. This is causing problems with my file sizes - significant difference.


Any way such an increase in file size?

If you need control over PDF export, make sure to use Landmark, Architect or Spotlight. The trial version would have had it included.


Fundamentals on its own can't control or limit what is sent to PDF via Print, that's all controlled by the operating system.

I've noticed that loading into acrobat DC, and re-saving will massively compress the PDF.

If you have Adobe CC, you can batch this operaton via Bridge and Acrobat.
