i'm doing a little research about effects of using and not using pdf compatibility and "use compression" when saving native .ai files.

majority of tutorials says using compression reduces file size but they don't tell what does it actually do, even in guides on adobe website they just say: 

"Use Compression

Compresses PDF data in the Illustrator file. Using compression increases the time required to save the document, so deselect this option if you’re experiencing very slow (8 to 15 minute) save times.", and actually, using compression reduces file size even if "create PDF compatible file" is turn off, so it affects other than PDF data in the .ai file, if i'm right.

 

any thoughts or help?
