I have 40MB *.ai file with 500cm length and 280 cm width. Saving as PDF (as Press Quality) is doable, but saving as PDf as Smllest File Size can not be created and it takes long time without creating the favorite file. The press quality file is very huge (about 70MB). I need to have smallest file size, but it is not created.
What is the problem and how can I solve the problem?
Thank you in advance.
Did you also uncheck the "Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilities" option?
Do it on a copy or you will ruin your Illustrator file.
I tested both check and unchek it, but none of them helped me.
How can I Save as smallest file size PDF?
Which version of Illustrator are you using?
Also, in order to reproduce the issue one would have to take a look at the original Illustrator file (.ai).
Can you perhaps share it?
Illustrator 24.3 (64-bit).
I think it is better to send it just for you or for somebody like you who can help me, then let me know how I can give it to you? Via email?
You may send a private message in this forum, Mohsen.
Then you may get further instructions.
In general, it is recommendable to share sample files publicly, so all participants may help. I do understand that this may sometimes not be desired, whatever reasons there may be.
You are saving a Large Canvas file.
I get some warnings about the document size, but continue and it saves (very small).
Which version pdf do you save 1.6?
As per Mohsen's statement it is not a large canvas file (5000 x 2800 mm), Ton.
Am I overlooking something or should we better wait for a sample file?
You are right, my mistake.
But no problems here saving a large file (136mb) as smallest file (2,4mb) in 24.3 (Mac)
Lets wait for the sample file.
