Exported Pdf files unreasonably large
I have been getting pushback from the people at IMSLP (where I am occasionally posting a typeset score or parts) because they consider the files too large (they accept only Pdf). It is true that they are larger than they need to be (like 100 kB per page or more rather than about 15) for good print quality.
This is probably only a problem for Mac users (OS Yosemite / Musescore 2.02). I can either use the Pdf export command or I can use "print" and use the OS to save to Pdf. In both ways the files will be of identical size. I suspect that Musescore is "outsorcing" the export to the OS. Any ideas on how to ask the system to "lower" the quality, i.e. reduce the overkill? I can't find a way to influence this except on the scanner (back when I had one--and anyhow I don't want to print and then scan the pages). Any tips?
I put the same question to the forums at IMSLP, but so far no results.
BTW: If you don't know IMSLP (imslp.org) check it out. Well worth it!
