pdf file size

    Question

  • I have a word document with 600 pages. when this is converted to pdf [save as pdf]  by win7/ word 10 it produces a 10Mb file. However when this file is converted to pdf  [save as pdf] by win10/ word 2013 it produces 18 Mb file. audit reveals that mainly difference is in the embeded font size as shown below.

    win7/office 10 

    total size 10.7 Mb with embeded font as 2.35 Mb

    win 10/office 13

    total size 18.4 Mb with embeded font as 10 mb.

     The fonts used are true type fonts. kindly advice how to reduce the file size.
