How it works

  • Add pdf: Add some pdf attachments that contains images in the models.
    In the following example, we selected the sale model in my compression rule. So, we are adding 2 pdf files which contain images.
pdf size
  • Run the compression rule: Go to the corresponding compression rule and run it. The pdfs satisfying these rules should be compressed.
    The system will show a pop up with the details of the compression:
    compressed pdf and total size reduction
Run Rule
  • Check results: Go back to the model where the pdf was uploaded and verify the results.
    Download the pdf and check the size reduction.

    the size of the filestore is reduced if Replace All was checked
