My organization has one user who recently has noticed very large pdf files being exported from her mxds. When I recreate and do the export, I am getting a 4mb file (normal). When she exports the file we are seeing a 2.4 GB file. I changed some settings and was able to get it down to 1GB, but that wasn't satisfactory (obviously).
Things we have recently tried:
-Deleted the normal.mxt (reduced pdf size to 100mb)
-Turned off the setting that saves the spatial information in the pdf
-DPI is at 300
It isn't an overly large mxd. Normal vector data with some labeling. The pdf size is 42" x 60".
Any ideas on what to try next? She is on an ArcEditor 9.3.1 license.
