Printer Que file size too big

Recommended Posts



I want to print some buidling plans on A3 size, on our network printer. (Brother MFC-J57200W)

When printing nothing happens and it blocks up the printer que. So I checked and the file size in the printer que was over 1 GB.
Tne PDF file is 288kB big. 

What is happening - and how can i prevent it from blowing up like this?
I am able to print A3 size prints all the time with Adobe.

Is there some setting where NITRO includes all embedded info as layers and creates this big file?


Print setting: Shrink to fit
Zoom: 49% 
Document: 84,1 x 59,4 cm
Paper: 29,7 x 42,0 cm


Thanks for any input,

Hello @odlmag,

Thanks for reaching out to us!

I have a couple of questions:

  • What exact build of Nitro are you using?
  • Can you please send us the file so we can have a look?
  • Do you have other printers? Is it behaving the same way when printing on those?
