      PDF Files greatly increasing the size of my database

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11

      Operating system version

      Windows

      Description of the issue

      I need to add PDF documents of 1 page each to my database.  Each document is around 40 KB, but when I insert the document (object) in a container field on a layout, the size of the database increases by thousands of KB per document.  I have tried "create new", "create from file" and checking the link box.   Is this normal or is there another way I can do it?  The documents are on a network server in a folder that each user has access to.
