Save all .pdf documents in reduced format by default

We would like to make all of our Adobe Acrobat 9 installations automatically save files in reduced format.  (You know how you can click on Document / Reduce File Size to reduce the size of a .pdf file?  We want to save all documents in the reduced format to begin with instead of having to come back later and reduce them.)

It would seem that there would be a setting for this, but I have yet to find one.

How can this be done?

Yes in Start > Devices and Printers > select the Adobe PDF printer and right click for Printing Preferences > Adobe PDF Settings tab > Default Settings dropdown and select Smallest File Size. This is usually set the same as Standard, so hit Edit and cranks down all the settings to suit. The easy targets are Compatibility and Resolution
Let me know how you go
