Topic: Spooling issues to lexmark printer
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 129571

Hi everybody, I am trying to create some basic pdf files through Acrobat6 & distiller (black and white single page documents with line drawings created in Freehand) which have both a small file size as well as creating a small spool size when printing.

At the moment my 30kb files are generating spool sizes of up to 1.5mb, when printing to a local lexmark printer. This is not good!

Creating the PDF directly from Freehand yields a significantly larger file size, and slightly smaller spool size (800kb).

Could anybody advise me of any known remedies to this problem? At this stage I am not sure if it is my printer settings or my joboptions in distiller which need to be modified. Thanks!
