    Hiya

    You can use WinRar, as it seems to compress files more than Winzip. Like Winzip, you have a 30 day trial, but it still works past those days, you just get a popup asking you to buy.

    If not, how small do you need the compression to be?

    Regards

    This is also going to depend on the specific PDF file. I create PDF's from scanned images of test data sheets, and they're basically not compressable past what they already are.
