pdftk compress cat pdfs

 8:37 pm on Mar 15, 2010 (gmt 0)

I am using pdftk to burst a 400 some page pdf into seperate pages which I then search the text of and concatenate certain pages into groups to be emailed.. Everything works great.. The only problem is, since I burst those pages each seperate pdf then needs a copy of the embedded images etc,,, so when I catentenate all the remaining pages that werent picked up previously into one the file size is much MUCH larger than even the first uploaded pdf was.. IS there a way with pdftk to have it ditch all unnessasary copys of embedded files?

Please help..

You figure this out yet, The_Hat? I'd be interested in knowing the solution if you found one.

No, it was decided that for my application neither the grouped pdfs nor the final "remaining pages" pdf's final sizes were outside of what was manageable, so I quit pursuing this line of exploration.
