Casedo acts like a living archive of documents. As such, Casedo files can become large. Exported casefiles from Casedo can therefore also be large.


Whilst this isn’t a problem in itself, there are some instances in which ebundles need to adhere to certain size requirements. For example, some courts have a size limit on submitted ebundles. There are a variety of ways you can lessen the size of the exported bundle, here are a some suggestions.

You can reduce the size of a Casedo file itself, by lessening the quality of imported images, for example, but this will not decrease the size significantly. What you can do, however, is reduced the size of an exported bundle using the Acrobat ‘Optimization’ feature.

Reduce the size of the documents in the Casedo file before importing them into Casedo.

Casedo is essentially an archive of documents created by other software. Optimising those documents before importing them into Casedo can make a significant difference to the overall size of the exported casefile.

Split the exported PDF into several parts without losing pagination of the original

If the bundle is large, your only option may be to split the bundle. You can do this without changing the page numbering if you follow the steps here:

How to split a large bundle

Use Adobe online PDF Compression tool

You may have some security concerns with uploading your exported pdf bundle, but this online tool works very well and has various options.

Use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC offline PDF Optimisation tool

You may need to have an Acrobat Pro DC license to use this feature.

1. Make sure your bundle is exported as PDF. Click HERE for more on this.

2. Open the PDF in Acrobat, In the ‘Tools’ bar find ‘Optimize PDF’ and click on ‘Advanced Optimisation’ button located at the top centre of your PDF reader.

3. Make sure to get your settings right as shown in below.

4. Now simply click ‘OK’ and then the ‘Compress PDF’ button located at the top of your page.

We cannot guarantee that the above will reduce the size of the bundle to the required size, but it will make a significant difference. If not, try going back to the Casedo bundle itself and see if any images can be removed or reduced before importing into Casedo, then export the bundle and run through the above procedure again.
