Download size is certainly a consideration for my PDFs - a few of our customers 
use old-fashioned 300-1200 baud modems in very isolated areas (upper Amazon, 
rural Vietnam, etc).

Not to minimize your question, but...

With the cost of computer storage running about $0.10 per gigabyte for hard 
disk or $0.50 per gigabyte for SSD, I'm not sure it's worthwhile worrying about 
10 MB more or less. That's less than 1/2 cent's worth of storage space. Unless 
you know your documents are going to be posted on a website where a significant 
number of users do not have anything resembling broadband access, spending more 
than a few seconds worrying about 10 MB in file size does not yield a good 
return on investment.

Subject: FM12: PDF file size exploding
Has anyone had an issue with the size of a generated PDF increasing 
dramatically after moving a book from FM10 to FM12 (or any earlier version of 
FM to FM12)?

I've got a book that's gone from under 3M to over 12M, and that's AFTER running 
the Save as Reduced Size.
Is this a bug, have I not set something up in either FM12 or Acrobat 10 
correctly, or is there a solution?
