We usually collect all docs and put in a word doc and then print to pdf and then compress to zip file.
While we are collecting docs to put into word doc, we receive all different types of docs from wards.
We can only import the first page of a pdf doc so we have to use snipit to get the other pages but don't know if there is a better way.
Are there other text formats that will compress more efficiently?
Pardon me for pointing out the obvious, but the first step is to insure that you're are dealing with text and not images of text. I know both Word and PDF will allow images, but it greatly increases the file space needed. The fact you're using snipit makes me wonder if you capturing images and not text. Simple cut and past (Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V) should work if you're dealing with text.
Depending on what the wards send you, you might have to OCR or retype things to get text.
