The smaller the pdf file, the easier it is for your readers to open and view it. I found some steps to help with compressing pdf files. I tested it, and it did make a difference. I am using the latest version of Adobe Acrobat for these steps:
- Open the pdf document
- On the Adobe Acrobat menu bar, select Advanced | PDF Optimizer and follow the Acrobat steps
MS Word has the option to save as a PDF. Print the document and Select As PDF.
MS Word for MAC operates a little differently. The PDF button is at the bottom of the Print Page screen. If your document is
creating multiple PDF files, below are steps to resolve this issue:
- File -> Page Setup
- Settings: Choose "Microsoft Word" from the dropdown box
- Apply Page Setup settings to: Entire Document.
