Save() function creates larger PDF than source PDF

Post by wd818 » Sat Jan 31 2009

When saving a PDF file into a new one while preserving its design and view data, why is the result PDF file much lager than the original? Somtimes the size difference is up to 15 times. Is there any way to keep the size small, or at least close to that of the source PDF?

Creator 3.03 is what we use.

CPdfcreactivex m_pdf is used as an ActiveX control in our MFC application

m_pdf.Open("D:\\My Documents\\Visual Studio Projects\\PDF\\PDF Creator Developer Manual.pdf", "");
m_pdf.Save("temp.pdf", 0); //to preserve design and view data

Actually this depends on the file itself.

I tried opening and saving few files and i got actually a smaller pdf file size.

You can send me a sample document by email to try it .
