Terrago export to GeoPDF

There are about 5 large area polygon layers with stipple/hatch patters. I feel these layers may be part of the issue.
I think you have pointed the issue out with the hatching. This is a known issue with ArcGIS and the workaround is to remove the hatch, and replace the fill with a Picture Marker Symbol.
EMF usually works good.
You can test if these hatches are the culprit by removing them, and for the time being, use a simple fill, and export to see if that fixes anything.

I am using Arc 9.3 and Terrago 5.2 to export GeoPDFs. The export works but is creating massive PDF file sizes. The maps are large and have numerous layers. There are about 5 large area polygon layers with stipple/hatch patters. I feel these layers may be part of the issue. I've tried them as representations, shapefiles, and they are in file geodatabases. Or these may not be the issue at all? Any suggestions how how to reduce these huge file sizes? They are exporting at about 35MB and they need to be below 15MB. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

From some more recent export attempts, it seems that the area polygons with a simple fill are making the PDF size bigger than the area polygons with the stipple/hatch patters. Ive tried to generalize these polygons to eliminate excess verticies, but that hasn't had any real effect on the size.
