    I think that the built-in capability of mac os x exporting word docs to pdf is a very good choice.

    But I think that it produces very big pdf files.

    If I do the same in windows with a third-party application, it produces much smaller file.

    Is there any way to customize this pdf exportation of mac os x?
    Is there any quick and easy way to export smaller pdf files from word docs or pages? Any freeware or shareware application for this task, besides the heavy app adobe acrobat professional?

    You can try the "Reduce File Size" filter in ColorSync in the Print dialog. Click "Copies & Pages" > ColorSync & then Reduce File Size under Filters, Then click the PDF button in the lower left of the Print dialog. I don't find that the Compress PDF choice in the PDF menu saves much, if any.
