Speed up PDF viewing in Preview
Authored by: MarkR on Dec 14, '09 03:39:07AM

An easy way to speed up the re-opening of large pdf files is to open them in Adobe Writer (assuming you have it), crop the entire image/s, click on: file / create pdf / from clip board image. The result will loose quality, but I reduced a 2.5 MB architectural set of elevations to a 256 kb file. I use a MacPro so the 2.5 MB is not the issue, but assume it is the formatting as the file was received from a Windows based computer.
