Bloated interactive PDFs

<< < (2/2)

I tried Libre Office a while back for interactive forms and it was not up to my layout requirements.

I will persist with Scribus as I think it's an amazing layout tool and it does 95% of what I need it to for interactive PDFs. Obviously some developers on the team think it's for more than just print.

For now, post-processing in Acrobat Pro gets my files down to a reasonable size. I also use it to Extend Features in Adobe Reader which further improves the end user experience (e.g. closing an unchanged PDF form does not ask the user to save). So while I still have a small dependency on Adobe products, at least it can be purchased as an outright license rather than paying their outrageous subscription fees.
