Topic: MS Word to PDF - Techniques to small pdf file size
Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 142157

I have been working with a 6 MS Word documents that comprise a 188-page MS Word document (2-column, tables, some simple graphics, web links, internal links, tagged-accessible pdf) that needs to be converted to PDF (using Acrobat 6 Pro) and also be a very small PDF files size (hopefully under 1mb). Currently, when I output this file using PDFMaker with 'small file size, 72dpi' it is about 4-5mb.

In the past, when I've worked with other files, those files have been for example 30-page Word document in a simple format as the one mentioned above, however the PDF file size for the 30-page document outputs to a 109kb PDF file size, which is acceptable and inline with the pdfs I usually develop.

Can anyone offer solutions as to how to reduce the file size for these PDFs being developed in MS Word?
