File size

Hello there,
if I insert a pdf file into One Note, either by "inserting file as printout" or by printing the pdf file into One Note, the One Note file size is much larger. Is this normal?
Example I inserted a pdf file that is 48kb in size and the converted file is 1.7MB.

Well- to be perfectly honest, I know nothing about OneNote.  But I did find the following which may (or may not) be of assistance to you....

Make sure that notebook is open in OneNote

Tools-->Options

Choose Save

Click on Optimize All Files Now

My understanding is that, unless they changed what was planned, the inserted pdf is actually rendered as an image. I don't offhand know if there is a way you can alter the resolution to keep the file size down, but will see what I can find.

Rory

Hello there,
thanks for that. Its all very weird. I originally inserted the 2 pdf files by printing them and choosing One Note as the printer. The 2 files were approx.100KB in size.
The One Note section file is 19,254KB in size.
I then deleted the 2 pdf files and rebooted the computer but Internet Explorer still shows the section to be 19,254 in size. The only way I can get reduce the size is to delete the section itself.
I also tried to delete the 2 files and reinsert one of them by "Insert files as printout". The section just increased in size by 3000KB. It is as if the other files are still there somehow.
Very weird!

When you delete inserted files, OneNote does not immediately reclaim the space - you need to use the Optimize option as mentioned above.
