Anyone know why when printing layout files and then opening in adobe, the file sizes are huge, but for those of us having adobe pro, you can reduce the file size? Why doesn't it just print at a lower file size in the first place. We are talking like 35 megs down to 8 megs. Seems like a redundant step to take every time you print and the clarity of the plans stays just as good. Weird?!?

What DPI are you printing at?

600 DPI

That is the answer to your question, and if you are printing (to a PDF) in colour that is multiplying the size of the graphic data by 32 as well (32 bit colour.)

Most likely the "flattened" pdf you are getting is around a 140-200dpi equivalent from chief's printer.
