I suspect that this mailing list is not an proper place to discuss this
issue (pdftex seems to be more appropriate) but since it started here…

With pdfx loaded after hyperref it seems that pdfx happily overwrites
almost everything in settings:

1) with these options



test document (2600+ pp) is ~14 MB; the same with



 but with


it bloats to ~20 MB. Where all these 6 MB go?

2) Compare  document properties: without pdfx they are

Application: LaTeX with hyperref package
PDF Producer: pdfTeX 1.40.14
PDF version: 1.5 (Acrobat 6.x) or PDF version 1.6 (Acrobat 7.x)--with
\pdfminorversion=6 off or on respectively
File Size 13.51 MB

but with pdfx

Application: pdfTeX
PDF Producer: pdfTeX
PDF version: 1.4 (Acrobat 5.x)
File Size 20.23 MB
