We are using ABCpdf in an ASP web-app to create PDF reports, made up of a mixture of images and text. These are typically 20-30 MB in size. However they can be compressed down to 0.5 MB quite easily, by printing them to a PDF printer.

I would like to be able to apply the compression programmatically, so that we don't have to carry out the further manual step.

Does anyone know how to do this with ABCpdf ?

Dear angelll,

I need to ask a new question and am prevented because I had unresolved questions.

I have resolved all that I could, this one remains.

Because you have started the auto-close process, I can do nothing with this question.

Please can u arrange for me to be able to ask my new question?

Or failing that, take the auto-close status off this one, so I can actually take control.

pls notify me at:
cr@altmore.co.uk
and
rafferty_conor@yahoo.co.uk

urgently need to get into EE to ask a new question, this is my 3rd year of subscription and hardly used EE in last 6mths !!!!!

I intend to accept the answer to this question, but I can't do that while you are going through the auto-close process. Could you stop the auto-close process so I can get this question answered ?

thanks!
