good morning
I bought the plug-in PrinterSwitch 2.1 (license XSoft Michele Teramo).
It works perfect, the only problem is that the generated pdf file is large (1.2 mb).
Previously, the native function to save pdf filemaker produced a file with the same content much smaller (0.2 Mb)
And 'possible to reduce the size?

    Hi Michele,

    What are you using as destination? And which operating system are you using, if I may ask you?

    Kind regards,

    I have the same problem but only under Windows system (tried under 7 and 8) : one A4 sheet with gives me a 70ko file with the native "save to pdf" and more than 350ko through the printerswitch driver.
    Is there a command to include to get lighter files ?

    Hi Noël,

    The save to PDF function in FileMaker uses a different PDF driver. That's why you see a difference in the filesize.

    Kind regards,
