I've got an old laptop with Windows 7 and Adobe Acrobat 2015 and PDFMaker word plugin, which came with the acrobat installer. I've purchased a new laptop, Windows 10 with newest Acrobat DC, and if I convert with files with PDFMaker to .PDF files, the files are much larger then previous installations. It was always around 140KB and now its about 380KB. For 1 file, its not a big problem, but I need to make 10.000 files like that and upload them to a very limited resource.
Is there a way to auto compress files while making? Or is there a feature of key that I can use tot always compress EVERY file I make with Acrobat? I can only make a file around 380kb and then compress THAT PDF file to 140kb. If I have to do that work-around with 10.000 files, it will be a big frustration.
In short: Is there a way to auto compress every file while making? or change something in Acrobat so that the compress option is ALWAYS on.
What conversion settings does you use?
Next to the Create PDF icon in that ribbon there's another one called Preferences. There you can decide what settings to use when converting the file to a PDF. This selection will have a big effect on the file size, among other things.
These are the general settings that are used whenever you use the PDFMaker plugin.
