PDF Bloat in FMP v12
Operating system version
Windows 7 and Mac OS 10.8
Description of the issue
Appended PDF files are MUCH large in FileMaker 12.
This is a HUGE problem. We append tape requests into a single PDF file to send to our duplication facility. A file created in FMP 11 is 2.7MB, but the same exact file in FMP 12 is 31.2MB. If you open it in Acrobat and do a save as, it brings the file back down to around 2.7MB.
These PDFs are automatically emailed and now we're getting rejections due to the file size being so large.
I'm just using FileMaker's built in PDF functions and append option. The script has been working fine since version 8.
Steps to reproduce the problem
Use FileMaker's append to PDF option and the PDF file grows and grows and grows. Much larger than in v11.
A smaller manageable PDF file.
A HUGE pdf file!
Open and save in Acrobat. Then we have to manually email the files.
