This may or may not be possible, depending on how much of the file consists of images and non-standard fonts. If it contains one of more high resolution images, several programs exist to recode the file replacing the images with lower resolution ones. This will not affect the readability at all (unless the images contain important text). Compress Pdf Online âs full version of Compress Pdf Online and other PDF manipulation programs can do this. If you have the original file, you may find it easier to modify the resolution of the images saved in that original file, or set a preference to compress the images more as t are saved. Another way to reduce the PDF file size is to use only standard fonts rather than include non-standard fonts in the file.
More information on the compression options of programs for file compression may be found here. If you are using Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader in Microsoft Word 2003/2007/2010 the program can automatically detect the size of files in PDF files and save the appropriate amount of bytes to the disk so that it can handle them easier. If you are using Microsoft Word 2007/2010, your default is to not save the full file size (size in bytes excluding the header). The program will automatically reduce the header and save the full size of the file. The problem with “Save as Text” is that it might not automatically reduce the file size for the large files that might take up a lot of memory. In such cases you might consider saving this document as it stands (without the “text” column). If you cannot save a file without a “.pdf” extension.
