    Re: Two pages become three (Word 2000 (9.0.6926 S

    Apologies for this tardy response. Nevertheless thank you for your reply.

    I created another PDF after adjusting the settings. The size of the file is 649Kb compared to 662Kb. I can't help thinking it is not much of a reduction when the Word 2000 document is 87Kb!

    Since sending the above message I have been trying again & now have had some success. I have omitted two non-essential images & have found the screen setting to give the smallest PDF size I can get of 165Kb. However it is still double the size of its Word parent file & that after using the PDF Consultant | Detect & Remove tool. However it still seems a big overhead to me.

    I wonder whether Acrobat is doing something special to the file that makes it relatively larger than the Word document. You could try a simpler, free print-to-PDF product and see whether there is a noticeable difference. CutePDF Writer is one option, as is pdf995 (but the free version generates a pop-up ad).

    Thank you - I will try the free options.

    That's better so much better - CutePDFWriter has converted a 68 Kb Word 2000 document file to a 55Kb PDF. I'm happy - thank you again.

    That makes me think some other option might be turned on in Acrobat, such as font embedding or... I don't have Acrobat, so I wouldn't know. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
