Are you embedding all fonts? Is Arial Unicode MS one of them? Are you calling a character that is getting substituted with one from Arial Unicode MS (and subsequently embedding it)?
That font is in the neighborhood of 24MB. -----Original Message----- From: framers-bounces+pnagai=visa.com at lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces+pnagai=visa....@lists.frameusers.com]On Behalf Of Rene S.

I have a 618kb JPG that has to be copied into the doc (can't be ref'd - long story, unusual case), and it balloons the FM file from 299 kb to 25,669kb when I insert that meager 618kb JPG! Any suggestions anyone?

One of these graphics in particular causes tremendous bloat. That AI (Illustrator) file weighs in at 1.9 MB. The PDF of the same file is a svelte 101 KB. If I import either the Illustrator file or the PDF'd Illustrator file and Save As PDF (standard job option at a measly 600 dpi or even at 1200 dpi) the file balloons out to 11 MB. If I produce a postscript file (from Frame) of the one page containing the graphic, the results are the same. The postscript file is 1.3 MB, which in turn distills into a 12 MB PDF. Bizarre. Any ideas on what to do? Vital statistics: Frame 7.0p579, WinXP Pro SP2, TimeSavers 3.6, Nav Asst. 2.3.2, Forms Asst 1.7.
