Re: Optimization Differences Compared To Chrome

Hello abcjme, Thanks for the video. The PDF file format is quite complex, and there could be a lot of information that will increase a file's size without this adding any visible content on the page(s) of the resulting document. Unfortunately I do not have the tools that e.g. our dev team has to 'd...

Re: Optimization Differences Compared To Chrome

Hello abcjme, I can not comment on why Chrome does things the way it does - even despite your settings! I can try and help with the Editor, and it does seem to be producing the smaller files already ;) Where is this "Circular option" you refer to? Can I get a screenshot illustrating it? Cheers, Ste...

Re: Optimization Differences Compared To Chrome

Hello abcjme, PDF Files can use compression - and when your text document is the same character over and over again - this normally compresses quite well. If it was a longer file - the PDF we create would compress even more relative to the original size of the .txt file. As for why Chrome makes the...

TXT TO PDF: Incorrect Space Interpretation

I check the hex coding of my txt files to make sure that spaces and tabs are in the correct spots to be in good alignment in all formats: csv, pdf, and txt. However, PDF-Tools screws up the alignment, despite using a monospaced font, setting all pt the same, and setting the spacing to exact. For com...

Re: Optimization Greatly Increases File Size

Hello abcjme, I've found that the file turns out slightly smaller using the tools preset you sent earlier on your original file. Could I ask you to open then tool, select a file for optimization, and export the preset that you are using for the optimize function? The ones I have currently appear to...

Re: Optimization Greatly Increases File Size

Hello again abcjme! We've ran some tests on your files, and when using the default settings in the PDF Tools optimization - we can not see any file size increase, so can you please share with us all the settings that you apply to your file when trying to optimize it, which produce the larger optimi...

Are we talking here about PDF-XChange Tools or about PDF-XChange Editor ?
That is not entirely clear to me.

Tools. No editing was done, strictly optimization.

The files are back now.

Optimization Greatly Increases File Size

Often, optimization will increase the file size by 1 kb. I know that's just due to header info. However, I have a particular file that increased 30+ kb after optimization! What the heck could cause such a dramatic increase!?!? Original: https://www.dropbox.com/s/297ese7xlxb0p4n/ts-2017y04m.pdf?dl=0 ...
