In the earlier link "Graphics exported from Mathematica 9 are very large because even standard fonts are embedded" was pointed out and discussed. Indeed, I met the same problem when I used Mathematica 9.0.0.

So I change the version from 9.0.0 to 10.2.0. Things becomes worse since the PDF file which was 5MB generated by Mathematica 9.0.0, is now 28 MB.

Can anybody give me a help? Thanks a lot.

    $\begingroup$ What is the graphic you are trying to export? Can you provide the code. It's quite hard to help without it! $\endgroup$ – Quantum_Oli Oct 1 '16 at 14:48
  • $\begingroup$ Have you tried with FontFamily? See Export to PDF on OS X, font missing on Windows $\endgroup$ – user9660 Oct 1 '16 at 16:22
  • $\begingroup$ Try to first rasterize your graphics and only then to transform it to PDF. This may help. $\endgroup$ – Alexei Boulbitch Oct 1 '16 at 19:59
  • $\begingroup$ @Louis Thanks a lot for your reply. I have tested FontFamily in version 9.0.0 and 10.2.0 with Times, Courier, Utopia and Calluna Sans, but this seems does not work. $\endgroup$ – user43489 Oct 3 '16 at 7:36
  • $\begingroup$ @Quantum_Oli Thank you for the help. What I am doing is listplot the data that I have achieved using Fortran. I have uploaded the files to the google drive drive.google.com/open?id=0B386iQcR5L1yM0JlZDQxQnJmOXM . Could you please take a look? Thanks again. $\endgroup$ – user43489 Oct 3 '16 at 7:41
