View Full Version : [Help - Conversion] Printing a PPT as a PDF

03-11-2010, 05:12 AM
I am suddenly having trouble with Microsoft Powerpoint and PDFCamp Printer. I create PPTX files that are 12MB and usually print to PDFCamp Printer to compress the size and create a file that is <1MB. However, starting yesterday when I selected this option to print, the 4.5MB file that I printed as a PDF is now a 7.1MB PDF. For some reason when the file converted from PPT to PDF the file size actually increased! I tried multiple files and this started happening with each of them.

Does anyone have any suggestions to why it happens so?

Some file formats are more efficient at storing information than others, depending on what they contain (images and whatnot). It can also be that there is no real efficient way to convert all PPT structures to a corresponding PDF structures (depending on how they're structured internally).
