TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Because I am new to Distiller, I am not yet familiar with its nuances in
saving. However, try opening the PDF in the reader and saving it using the
Save As option. Whenever I save using just the Save option, I get a message
to the effect that using Save As optimizes the file for size - the
implication being that Save does not.
