Saving to a pdf in Google docs is twice the size of a word file and larger than Word saving to a PDF
Has anyone used Google docs to save to a word file and also to a pdf? Without changing anything between the two the PDF is 180kb and the word doc is 90kb. Isn’t the advantage of a PDF that it compresses unnecessary information? When I compress the same file from the 90kb word file in Microsoft Word 2011 to a PDF on a Mac I get 150kb. What is the other 30k doing in that PDF file? Has anyone else noticed that Google docs makes chunky PDF’s?
keriah found the answer:
Create a table of contents – Word – Microsoft Office. Pretty good guide on how to do this. This can be a time saver.
Office apps showdown: Word processors Office Macworld. So Pages is a good app if you don’t need security on your documents like Word provides. Word can be overly complex for many people, and Google Docs is not a real contender here. It is so basic many people will waste more time with it then they will save.
