Most common image file formats, PDF included, are rectangular in shape. Everything is contained inside a rectangle of a certain size. Then, some formats will allow transparency to be used, in which case you can have rounded corners in the actual artwork, but not in the actual file itself, which will still have sharp, 90-degree corners.

Also in Bluebeam Revu, you can go to "reduce file size" and then use a "custom" preset which lets you check/uncheck certain items to include in the the filesize reduction... one of the options is to remove cropped content. Hope this helps!

An artboard can't be rounded. A rounded rectangle is enough, and it can be used to achieve your purpose. It is how we design all kinds. I hope you understand.

PDF Job Options are how to alter PDF save settings. When saving from Illustrator these are called Adobe PDF Presets (No clue why Adobe doesn't use the correct, established, terminology here). Simply set things how you want them then click the little "save to disk" icon (circled in red above) to save a preset (Job Option). In the future you can ...

Set the text color to [None]. Text "with color" will always appear in a PDF, even if there are objects covering it or you select 'white' as its color. The thick underline is a simple rectangle, but as you correctly (and wisely!) double-checked, that actual text still gets rendered first. However: the PDF rendering model does not have an equivalent ...

The "washed-out" effect is common with CMYK documents. For one, pure black in CMYK appears faded in comparison to RGB. Change the color mode to RGB and try reapplying the colors. That should help.

Following PDF only with JPG photo is 7 times larger than original one solution could be to use JPEG compression for raster images instead of the default ZIP compression, which is similar to PNG. At JPEG compression of maximum quality, the PDF file weighs 1.9 MB.

Yo do not have a JPG file anymore. When you embed a photo inside a document, you do not have a JPG file anymore, you have a document with a photo inside. And this image is now subject to the new file's compression rules. The abrupt change in the file size of the PDF is most likely due to two things: You do not have an RGB file anymore. You are converting it ...

All you need to do is "shuffle" your single pages so they are set up in spreads: Note: You don't have to use a 2-page master if you don't need variations between the left and right pages. You can use the same master page for all pages if it is appropriate. The animation above, while showing the concept, was originally created to show how to handle ...

In general Let me spam you another answer: Svg file size more than a png image Here is a graph where the x-axis is the pixel size and the y-axis is the file size. A vector file is mostly independent of the dimensions and a raster image is proportional to it. But that is not the full story. Now let us think in an uncompressed raster image vs a vector file ...

to be customized with a picture of the client and the client's logo somewhere on it, also some change in language sometimes. Define your workflow. There is a process called variable data or data merge, and you probably need to look at it. The basic idea is that you have a table with the data that needs to change, let's say a name, and the location of the ...

Aside from the ensuing quality control issues already mentioned by others here in the comments, the problem is that PDF is not really designed to be an editable format. It's a publishing format. Although there is software that can open PDFs and edit them, such as Adobe Acrobat Pro, LibreOffice Draw, and even online PDF editors, the extent to which it will be ...
