PDF - File size of generated PDFs has massively increased
This information applies to :
March 8, 2016
Previously PDFs created through QuoteWerks saved with an average file size under 100kb; now they're generating at 1000kb or higher.
The option to Embed Fonts has been checked on the Misc tab of the Tools -> My Preferences menu.
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.
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.
