The file size of my RTF document grows very large as soon as I start using graphics. How can I prevent that?
In Rich Text Format (RTF), graphics are stored in uncompressed form. For this reason, it is possible that the file size of a document with embedded graphics can be very large in RTF.
Through the optimized insertion of the graphics and the filter functions of CIB merge, the file size can be reduced considerably.
The reduction of the file size is achieved in two steps:
1. If it has not yet taken place, all graphics used are inserted in Word in optimized form.
2. Prior to testing and distribution, the items intended for printing are optimized with CIB merge.
You can get a guide to the procedure from CIB support.
