.docx file size bloat when printing file with multiple pictures.
Today we found out that a 12MB, 23 page .docx (tech coursework with roughly 2 pictures a page) will bloat to 525MB when being sent across the network to the printer. The pictures have been compressed using Word's built-in widget.
If I test it using a .pdf printer installed on my local machine it'll do the same thing, resulting in a 31MB .pdf
Is there any workaround / fix for this as I'm getting congestion on our colour copiers (s'coursework deadline time)?
