Optimize combined pdfs

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

in our application we combine several pdf-files to one single file. Those pdf-files (PDF/A-1b) were created with Aspose.Words out of a

MS-Word document. Each of those files contains the needed fonts. It seems that in the joined pdf the fonts exists multiple times.

To reduce the size of the file, we would like to have the fonts one-time. Is there a possibility to get that? If it is so,

how can we do it?

Best regards,
