PDF scaling

Hi,
   my publication is on A7 format and I need to publish it as A5 format. 
With normal printers there is no problem, just set the scaling to 200%, but 
how could one achieve that with Publisher's PDF export feature?

            Thanks,
                  Jan

Jan, I use Pub 2000, sans built-in PDF but if you select File, Printer 
setup, is PDF listed?  If so, can you then select Printer Preferences and 
there may be "Scaling".

Hi Don,
  thank you for your answer. However, Office 2007 PDF (and XPS) built-in 
exporting is not represented by printer and does not offer scaling setting, 
or at least I haven't it found yet.

I don't know if the free primopdf program will scale but you can try.

www.primopdf.com

I use PDF-XChnage (modest price) and it will scale.  It will also retain any 
links you may have in your document.

http://www.docu-track.com/downloads/users/

Scroll down the page.  Also, consider the Tools package no matter which pdf 
creating program you use.

The Viewer program is nearing Gold and you may want to try it.

I don't know of any PDF drivers that offer a scaling feature. However, 
you could simply create an A7 PDF and then get Reader to scale it to A5 
when printing. After all, the proportions are the same...

The Adobe PDF printer can do, as well as pdf995 for the free ones.
Yes, I can do this, but the commercial printer does not seem to.

Thanks for your reply,
     Jan

Printing Excel 2007 pie charts to PDF
I am attempting to print a series of PDF files (approx. 7000) from an Excel 2007 file, and I am having issues with the size of each file and the time it takes to generate each PDF file. The pages in Excel that I am using have several pie charts and line graphs, and I think they are the reason my files are so large. One of the pages in particular has six pie charts (Style 26 in Excel 2007), and printing just that page created an Adobe PDF file that is ~1.4 MB. I printed the same page to PDF using pie charts with Style 18, and the file is ~200 KB. The simple answer is to just use Style 1...
