Question Embedding font problem

Wonder if someone here can help me please.

Embedding a font is causing huge file size increase.
Font is a TTF and only 30kb in size.

File is a mix of textboxes and graphics and only uses three fonts, Impact, Arial and Lucida Sans Unicode, saved in .doc format and is 462kb, with font embedded it rises to 1161kb !



In Options > Save, I have made sure all embedding boxes are checked Dont emebed Sys fonts and Only used Chars.

Anybody know whats causing this and ideas how to sort this out please
Thanks

Update

Been experimenting and seem to be getting random results, in the main the file sizes are around 3-4 times original size with embedding on.

Also downloaded a .doc file from 2008 not composed on my PC
3 pages of Times New Roman and some Verdana a couple of small tables and a smidge of coloured text here and there
File size 136kb

Changed setting to embed font (same 30kb TTF font file) as earlier
literally did nothing else, didnt even use a new font then saved file.
Now 1182kb

opened a new .docx put in some text embedded a font and saved, no problem nice small file of around 40kb.
re-opened and re-saved as .doc....file shoots up to 153KB,
turned of embed and re-saved file size back to around 40kb.

so it seems to be a problem with .doc format files .docx seems fine, trouble is i have to use this .doc format so others can read the document..

If nobody has any ideas i might try and reinstall see if that helps although i doubt it
