I am working on reducing file size for thousands of insurance related PDF documents which are downloaded from a server to the clients numerous workstations for large batch printing of these forms.
I did not design the forms, Ive just been asked to get in to Acrobat or wherever and make them smaller.
One concern is if I can somehow not embed the standard fonts that are used (Times and Arial). Being that these exist natively on all of the users workstations it's seems to be unneccesary file size.
Any idea on how to "un embed" these fonts. . . or other good file downsizing tricks. . .
(each PDF is an average of 170 kb and they want it even smaller)
