Hi,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Well, I have received the following feedback from the development team and according to them this is not an issue in Aspose.Pdf for .NET.
Method Optimize () just make Pdf document linearized. The primary goal for a linearized PDF file is to achieve the following behavior:
1. when a document is opened, display the first page as quickly as possible. The first page to be viewed may be an arbitrary page of the document, not necessarily page 0 (though opening page 0 is most common).
2. When the user requests another page of an open document (for example, by going to the next page or by following a link to an arbitrary page), display that page as quickly as possible.
3. When data for a page is delivered over a slow channel, display the page incrementally as it arrives. To the extent possible, display the most useful data first.
4. Permit user interaction, such as following a link, to be performed even before the entire page has been received and displayed.
So, it is not necessary that Optimized Pdf document will be smaller. Moreover, we often see that Adobe Acrobat save arbitrary Pdf document as linearized document with greater length. So issue description is totally normal.
Please feel free to share your comments / observations with us.
Sorry for the inconvenience,
