   There is a small printer properties settings change that you can make that will help reduce the size of the PDF files with no effect on the PDF.
  1. Right-Click on the "PDF reDirect v2" or "PDF reDirect Pro v2" printer and select "Properties"
  2. Click on the "Advanced" tab
  3. Un-check the "Enable advanced printing features" checkbox

   That's it! In the case of a 584 page book printed from MS Word, the PDF went from 2.1MB to 1.6MB: a sizeable improvement! Note that these "Advanced features" apply to "real printers" and not to the "PDF reDirect" PDF printer, so you should not lose any functionality.
