File size blowing up, even when removing detail

Recommended Posts

ive been using Nitro for a few years now.

im still blown away at how big some of these files get after making edits.

As an example

1- I open a simple 8 page PDF containing images and text @ 600kb or so

2- delete a page as its no longer required.

3- Save as new document - now a 7 page PDF @ over 5mb

as a work around, i would then "Optimize" the new PDF, bringing it down to 700kb.

So i now have a document with one page less, a larger file size, AND images that have been resampled to a Lower quality !!!

is Nitro just inefficient or is there a setting i need to adjust ?

I notice this with alot of documents, and up till now ive just accepted it.

But its really something that shouldnt be happening.

Nitro Pro 12.16.3.574

NITRO Team, or others, please advise a fix or setting i may be missing...

thanks

Have you tired saving a copy of the document using Save As after deleting a page? How did it go?

Thank you very much in advance and I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

Hi @Nathan V

Thank you for getting back to me and for providing this information.

Significant improvements have been made when saving documents using Save and Save As functions upon the release of Nitro PDF Pro 13 and you can review other enhancements by visiting our Release Notes page below:

https://www.gonitro.com/product-details/release-notes 

In addition to that and many other feature improvements, Nitro PDF Pro 13 also contains some important security vulnerabilities fixes that you might want to consider when deciding whether to upgrade to it or not. You can find out more about these fixes here: https://www.gonitro.com/nps/security/updates 

To further assist you, we highly recommend upgrading to our latest version at a discounted rate by entering your serial number '234601-xxxxxx-398225' through our Upgrade Portal https://www.gonitro.com/pro/upgrade  as we have stopped making feature enhancements to version 12 once we released version 13. 

Thank you for choosing Nitro and I hope this helps.

Thats not what i was hoping for

if i want to spend more money id spend it on another program that doesnt blow up PDF's when removing data from them.

i feel i should get a free upgrade to be honest
