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

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
The PDF has to be posted as a shared review on a cloud web storage site.
There's a size limit to what you can upload. My company is using corporate
GMAIL and I have a 30Gb limit on storage, and for now I have to attach a

I haven't seen this one personally yet, or figured out how it gets
triggered. The fix for Debbie was fairly simple; she designated all of her
callout paragraph formats to straddle sideheads and columns, which
effectively masks the problem. Of course, a solution could be scripted if
I haven't run into this recently (using FM11 and FM12 mostly) but know that it
was a bug that was NOT triggered by accidental keystrokes. The easiest fix was
to use the backup file. I can't remember if I could fix it by using the
template to reimport the master pages into the files affected.
Ah! More information I left out!
The book is an unstructured book, but it includes 3 files that were created
from structured data. Those 3 files are still structured, because that's
the only way to keep the xref links working.
The process is this:
1. An Excel 2010 spreadsheet is converted to
I’m not sure if this would work in structured FrameMaker but you could change
the PDF compatibility before printing. The File compatibility bloats the size
of the PDF if you make your document compatible with too many past versions of

Yes, of course. I wasn't jumping on you--it's a legitimate point. I was
supplying information that I (stupidly) left out before.

If these files started off as XML or structured files, and the others
didn't, there could definitely be some extra cruft in there. You
probably checked this already, but are these files still structured?
I haven't noticed any significant size difference in PDFs from XML from
FM11 to FM12. I
After a bit of testing, the increase seems to be linked to 3 files that
were created using DITAFMx from a batch of xml files that were generated by
script from an Excel workbook. Interestingly, these files have always been
part of the document (and inserted in the same way), so I'm not sure why
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).

But I think it was worthwhile to point out that there are legitimate reasons
for many of us to have never noticed whatever change may have occurred, or to
have never spent time investigating if we *did* notice a difference. In other
words, you might not see a lot of responses to
Lin,I just tested your issue opening a 12 page text only structured FM7.2 file
and saving it as FM12.Did nothing more than open the FM7.2 in FM12 and then
save it as a FM12 document.Printed FM12 version using Acro XI Adobe PDF
driver.Distilled postscript to PDF.FM7.2 file size=358KB Acro 8
And I wasn't jumping on you, either, Lin. I wanted to clarify to several others
who had replied (off-list and on-) that they have similar concerns to yours but
for different reasons that many (maybe most) FrameMaker users don't pay much
attention to file size because there's no need for them to
Yes, there will always be certain circumstances where size matters; but for
most of us, it simply is what it is.
It's not how big your file is. It's what you do with it.

Hello. I've tried creating a PDF with Adobe SourceSans Han font (Chinese
Simplified) on the following set:
FrameMaker: Ver. 12 (Japanese Ver.)
OS: Windows 7 Pro (Japanese Ver.)
Joboption: Press Quality
How to create PDF: Save as PDF...
Used font: SourceHanSansCN-Bold,
I also found that for some unknown reason, when you save to pdf and
generate Acrobat data (PDF Setup), under bookmarks, Thread by Text Frame
always seems to be checked. Not sure what it's doing, but I found that
when it was checked the embedded videos would not play (even though I had
