Speed up PDF viewing in Preview
Authored by: marineblue on Mar 17, '09 05:59:55PM

I had a similar problem trying to get a smooth-flowing version of a large PDF document onto my iPhone. As Typhoon14 noted, PDF version 1.3 seems to be critical. By examining the properties of various PDFs I figured out this corresponds to Adobe Acrobat v4. By selecting this compatibility option in the Adobe save dialogue, I got a much smaller file than from Preview, but perfect "behaviour" on both my iPhone and in Preview.
