Are you using the most current release of QuoteWerks?
Version 5.5 Build 1
Issue:

Previously PDFs created through QuoteWerks saved with an average file size under 100kb; now they're generating at 1000kb or higher.

Cause:

The option to Embed Fonts has been checked on the Misc tab of the Tools -> My Preferences menu.

Solution:

Unchecking this option will reduce the size of the files. This option is typically only needed when using non-standard fonts or variations of standard fonts. For instance, if you have a barcode font, you typically need the barcode font embedded for others to see the barcode.


Updated Note:
Version 5.1 Build 4.x, embedded fonts are now forced. This is due to an update that now compresses the embedded fonts much better and the extra space is not a concern for modern bandwidth.
