Summary

My pdf files have inflated by 20 times since converting my existing file from version 6 to version 11.

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11

Operating system version

Mac Lion

Description of the issue

Using FMP 6 my files containing, club member information for 45 members and the member photos, a pdf file would be a max of 1.3 megs.  Upon conversion to FMP 11 the pdf created by either the embedded pdf generator or by using the pdf creator in the print command the file became 21 megs.  This is far to large for email.
The 30 photos are all rather small (30k to 70k) except for a few that were about 157k-170k.
The older version of FMP won't run on Mac Lion.
