  • In order to reduce the output file size, please uncheck the box of "Fill TTF Text" in step 4/5.

    If a drawing contains True type fonts, as the texts increasing, the output PDF file size will be enlargement.
    This is because characters carry font styles and solid entities. It is the solid entities cause the enlargement of the output file size.
    Here is the character looks like in a DWG drawing:

    When convert the drawing to a PDF, if you would like to get a smaller size of the PDF, please unselect "Fill TTF Text", and the converted texts will only preserve the font style but the solid entities will lost. As a result, the converted PDF file size will be much smaller and the process of the conversion will take less time.
    Here is the character looks like in a converted PDF:

    However, if you leave the box checked in step 4, you can still get the filled texts in a converted PDF.
