PDF File size

I am testing PrinterSwitch as an alternative to FM's save as PDF function. The primary reason for this is that When FM saves one of my layouts, it is very large (over 6MB). They are image backgrounds with text. Unfortunately when I print with the PrinterSwitch plug in, the same layout is 43MB. Is there any way to get Printerswitch to print to a smaller PDF size?

Thank you.

    Hi Bill,

    This is the way that the Amyuni PDF driver saves it. Unfortunately we can't change this.

    Kind regards,
