I have a writer document including pics, file size 8+ mb. When creating a pdf using OOowriter (Version 2.3) the file has 12+ mb, when creating a pdf file using Acrobat distiller the file has 300+ kb how come????

Do distiller and OOo use the exact same settings or different? Because if the settings on what to include in the .pdf are different netween the two that may be your answer.

mark nelson,
I don't know the settings i.e. I used the default settings for both apps.

How would I change the settings for the OOo writer file converter?

Tim Carry,

I am not looking for yet another program, I hope that the OOo writer pdf converter can be tweaked to do what I need, i.e. to make large files small in this case.

For the OOo exporter it if I recall correctly is File Export Pdf that takes you to the export settings.
