Al et al ATHEN-ites,

Try using the compress file and flatten images settings and see if this
helps reduce the file size. I seem to recall that a previous version of
ABBYY FR had this same problem with gigantic/unmanageable file sizes.
Someone else on the list may recall what tricks were used for the earlier
version of AFR that did this same behavior.

Subject: [Athen] ABBYY Finereader 12 Default Settings Gobbling Disk Space?


Just wondering whether others have run into this. We recently upgraded from
ABBYY 9.0 to ABBYY 12. This is our first semester with version 12, and we
are seeing that disk space is being consumed at an alarming rate. For
example, the folder containing the entire output of our book production for
Spring semester is 5GB. One book from this semester, produced with ABBYY 12
is taking up 17 GB. Have ABBYY's default behaviors and settings changed
markedly enough to cause this? What settings for resolution, color depth,
etc, are generally preferred when doing eText production?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts,
