Topic: Font information in spawned pages

I have a template page that I have reduced to only 15 form fields in an attempt to locate a problem I'm having with massive output files. I use automation to spawn the template a number of times, fill in the fields on each page, flatten the pages and then extract the flattened pages to a new document before saving.

I've stripped the source file down to the form fields only, leaving 11k of template, and the 95 page output file is still 2.3Mb containing 1.6Mb of font information.

02.6% 0067936 Content streams
73.9% 1915380 Fonts
00.0% 0000107 Forms
05.0% 0130389 Cross Reference Table
18.5% 0479738 Unknown
100.% 2593550 Total

Anyone know how to reduce the font information stored? Or what the other content in the file is?
