I have a scanned document where embedded fonts make up more than 90 % of total filesize.

I want to delete at least some of these, since the filesize is enormous and there seemingly are a lot of duplicate fonts.

However, when I go to optimize pdf > advanced optimization, no font is listed.

How can I delete the fonts and reduce the filesize?

Hi William258944569fd6,

Hi Meenakshi

 

Thanks for your reply!

I did try to follow the guide, although I did not completely understand the steps. No success.

 

I did the following.

File>Create>Blank Page

File>Insert Pages> From File

No change in size or optimization options

 

I also tried

File>Create>Blank Page

File>Create>Combine files into a single PDF

 

Best,

William

The scan was sent to me by a colleague, I'm not exactly sure how it was created.
