    Tableau 8: PDF file size is 3.5 times bigger than Tableau 7

    Xinmin Shuai

      In some cases, the PDF file size generated by Tableau 8 is much bigger than Tableau 7.


      I attached a twbx file (Tableau 7 version) which can be opened in both Tableau 7 and Tableau 8.


      The PDF file size by Tableau 8 is about 35MB while the PDF file size by Tableau 7 is only 11MB.


      Also PDF by Tableau is slower to refresh page than those by Tableau 7.


      Tableau 8 needs to improve the PDF quality and reduce the PDF file size  in some cases.
