I am aware of some Microsoft Word to PDF converters and have been using MS word itself to do this. But I am wondering if there's any conversion tool that produces the PDF files as small in file size as possible? For example, I have a Word document for my resume being 43KB, which was converted to a PDF file of 385KB. It would be better if the size can be smaller.
EDIT: Here is an example, including an original Word docx (115KB) and a converted PDF file (452KB). I used Word 2016 to export the docx file to the PDF. Please download the sample here: https://app.box.com/s/gk3vvdcy16t4avn6gy0yyyyvjja5y9ag
Personally I think it's the font of the title and the text effect of the headings that somehow increase the size of the transformed PDF file.
