Chapter 10. Saving PDFs > Optimizing Files

Optimizing Files

When you add data to PDF files, such as making comment notes, Adobe Reader keeps track of all your edits. If you add a note and delete it, the deletion doesn't return the document to its original file size. As a result, the file size tends to swell more than needed to preserve all the data. When you use the Save command, you're saving that oversized file.

As an alternative, you can rewrite the file to disk and eliminate any redundant data, producing a smaller, optimized file. To do this, use the Save As command.
