I'm trying to send a PDF portfolio through e-mail, but the PDF is way to large.  It's 31MG.  When I go to compress the PDF Port in Acrobat, the reduce size PDF is in grey and I can't click on it.  Any suggestions?

Then you can't reduce the PDF file.

I have a file that has been e-signed and will not allow me to reduce the size.  Directions say to go to documents and change the setting, and that doesn't work either.  Any option with a document that's been e-signed?

No. A digital signature prevents the file from being edited.

You just have to find a way to work with the big file you have. Is emailing it the problem? There are many better ways to send it.
