Reduce File Size

Revu provides a mechanism for reducing the size of some PDFs to make them more palatable for email or a Document Management System. This tool works by compressing bitmap images and removing non-visible document data. It does not affect vector content. Be aware that performing this action on a page containing flattened markups will prevent all markups on the page from being unflattened.

This process can be run on multiple PDFs at the same time. PDFs do not need to be open in Revu when the process is run. If a document is open in Revu, any changes resulting from the process will be made to the document, but the document will not be saved or checked in (if relevant); the user will need to save and check in the document manually. If a document is not open in Revu, and it is not checked out/locked by another user, changes will be applied and saved to the document automatically (without opening the document in Revu).
