    I'm using the trial version of XEP to generate a PDF document, a version of which we previously created using the Miramo tool. The purpose of this exercise was to prove to ourselves that XEP can be used to quickly generate a fairly complex PDF (this we need to do before embarking on a new project that will use XEP rather than Miramo).
    I am really impressed with the product.
    The only question I have is:
    Are there any PDF file-size optimization "tweaks" of which I should be aware? I've used the trial version and created a PDF with our corporate font "Arial" embedded in the document AND the "subset" attribute for the font set to "true". However, the PDF generated is 40% larger than the version created with Miramo (180KB vs 125KB), which also embedded the font.
    I admit that this might be due to something that I have implemented incorrectly. However, any advice that you have would be greatly appreciated.
