« on: January 17, 2024, 04:44:54 AM »
I copies images in cad file, CAD file without images is 0.5 MB and images total 2.0MB
But the CAD file now is 63.0MB
Why is this?
How to reduce the file size?

You pasted these in? And now they are OLE objects?

If you make a copy of this DWG, and start deleting things, when does the file size drop?
IOW - Trial and error

I deleted all objects, but the file is 30MB.

The file is empty.

It contains a non-purgable block that is used by render lights. It is also why you can't delete some layers.
