Very Large PDF files created

When I create PDF files from Excel, Word or Visio and have one logical page per physical page, the files seem to be a realistic size.
If I take one of these PDF and use the print functionality to create a new PDF where there is either 2 logical pages printed on one physical page or 4 logical per physical, the resulting PDF is very large.

One example:

  • Original Vision file: 320KB
  • Created a PDF (one document page for one physical page) via PDF Architect 4: 226KB
  • Created a new PDF (two document pages for one physical page) from the original PDF via Print: 2.4MB

Any ideas?


I am not able to reproduce this here in the latest version, which version do you have installed?
Please check if an update will solve the problem.
