PDF Tools Extract File Size ?

Post by danna » Sat Dec 15, 2018 4:20 pm

I would like to extract pages from a file that has 129 pages and is 45 mb.

Attempted to extract pages 1-26 into one file ... extracted just as expected.

What I did not expect was it to keep the same file size, my 26 page file is also 45 mb.

Is there a way to fix this ?

Hi Danna,

Thanks for the email - please try the File --> Save As Optimized feature.

Thanks,
If posting files to this forum, you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded.
Thank you.

Best regards

I do not see that option in PDF Tools.
This is the only option I see.

Will is speaking about File --> Save As Optimized feature of the Editor, not about PDF Tools

Open your file in Editor and Save as Optimized

Thanks for the help OVG,

I also noticed that danna is using an older PDF Tools (V4) - while our current V7 does have an optimization option inside Tools as well:

Thanks for the reply's guys.

My editor does not have '"save as optimized" either.

It has both "Save as" and "Save copy as" but both only have PDF as an option.

Hello danna!

You are using Viewer, not Editor ....

If I would upgrade to current version(s)

any idea how much of a difference ... optimizing would have on that 45mb file ?

Can you upload your file to somewhere and tell to me which pages to extract?. I'll try your steps

Thanks Ovg ... appreciate your efforts.

I have 3 computers ... 2 desktops and 1 laptop. (all home computers)
One desktop has no internet connection.

Would the single user license allow me to install on all 3 ?

AFAIK no, you can install only to one desktop and to one laptop.
