Answers / Adobe Reader
I am trying to post a resume on a particular job site. The site will not accept my .doc file and when trying to post it as a PDF, it says it's too large. So, upon trying to reduce the size via Adobe 11.0.01, I do not see an option. Whether it be in "save as" or any of the main options. Any help in this matter would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

Use "Save As Other..." and then either "Reduced Size PDF" or "Optimized PDF". Depending on if you have Standard or Pro, you may only see one of these.
Unfortunately, Karl, neither of your two suggestions are options in my version of 11.0.01. (only the option of "text") Even converting it to text, the job site wouldn't except it.

What version of Acrobat do you have, Standard or Pro? What do you find under the Save As Other menu item?

This is the version I have: http://get.adobe.com/reader/
"Save As Other" --> Text...
Word or Excel Online
Those are my only two options, Karl
Ah... that means you don't have Adobe Acrobat (I just noticed that you've posted this in the Reader forum, I should have known, sorry about that0. Reader does not allow you to write out an optimized PDF files, so with just Reader you don't have any methods of optimizing or shrinking your PDF file. You would have to use either Acrobat Pro or Acrobat Standard. If this is a one time only job, you can download the 30 day evaluation version of Acrobat XI Pro from Adobe's web site, install it and shrink this one file. If it's an ongoing requirement, you may want to invest into a license of Adobe Acrobat.
Right, makes sense now. I downloaded a trial version of "Nitro Pro" to no avail. Yeah, it'll be a one time shrink job. (heck, if i can shrink it for this place, anybody should except it, yeesh)
I'll definitely take your advice on XI Pro.
Thanks, Karl...I appreciate it. (who knows, we may talk again :/ lol)
