I am making a catalog of pictures.   During the process the user can either select on file or multiple files sorted by category.  

 

Why would the pdf files be so much larger than the Word files?  It’s usually the other way around!  

 

I combined the individual pdf files and it became 45MB.  I combined the word files and it was 37MB.  I then turned the 37MB word doc into a pdf and it became 4MB.  So as output from Smartview(my program) the pdf file is 45MB but generating a pdf from the word files it is 10x smaller!!!!

Hi Claude,

Can you please share more details on the specific scenario and the code used to combine the PDF files? Are there any fonts inside them? It would be helpful if you can share the generated document so we can investigate what is increasing its size. 

Regards,
