      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.
