Summary

PDF File Sizes Jumped tremendously after switching from FM11 to FM12

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12

Operating system version

Windows XP

Description of the issue

We converted several files from FileMaker 11 to FileMaker 12.

Upon doing so, several of our PDF scripts stopped working correctly.  Specifically, file sizes suddenly jumped up from 500k to 16 meg; this is far to big to email.

I tried recreating the Print Script, but that didn't help.

My settings are 300 dpi (same as before), and the printing is occurring through Adobe Acrobat 9.x.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Run Print Script (Print Setup, followed by Print).

Expected result

I expect a smaller size than what we are actually getting.

Configuration information

Windows XP; FileMaker 12 (main file is hosted on FileMaker Pro Server Advanced)

Workaround

None.
