This article explains how to reduce the size of a CHM document.

To reduce the size of documentation in.CHM format, uncheck the following options in the Database options tab under Data sources and objects panel:

  1. System objects
  2. Data definition language (DDL) script
  3. Transact-SQL syntax highlighting
  4. Documentation of procedure/function result sets
  5. Dependency (parents/children) lists/tables
  6. Explicitly parse database for improved dependency accuracy
  7. Graphical dependencies
  8. Data model diagrams

Note: Disabling some of these options affects documentation quality.
