Here is a simple elevation drawing produced in Layout:
ECHO HILL DIMS.pdf (334.9 KB)
On a Mac, you can print direct to PDF and that is what I usually do because it is quick and simple. However, that produced a file of 3Mb. So I opened it in a PDF reader and then chose Reduce File Size which got it down to a tenth of the size with no very obvious loss of detail.
I guess I should try exporting to PDF to see if I get a similar sized file. But I know with some software, files get automatically optimised for size. For example, if I drag a multi Mb photo file into an email, it gets hugely reduced to ease transfer. Could Layout (in theory) do something similar or is it all to do with being on a Mac, or something else outside Trimble’s control?
And what actually is the difference to an end user of the 3Mb file over the 0.3Mb file I uploaded here? Maybe it would become clear if I blew the image up to cover the front of the White House?
PS Just tried exporting an that does produce a much smaller file.
