Publisher: Linked vs. embedded resources

Recommended Posts

Hello!

A quick question without thorough research (sorry for that):

I have a Publisher document with lots of linked images. The file size has grown rather big nonetheless (1,5GB as of now).

The whole idea of linked resources/images is to make automatic updates possible, and to keep the file size low - which seems not to be the case, really (automatic updates work, however).

Where could the huge size come from? Bug? Embedded preview images or something?

Thanks!

Hard to say without seeing the document.

For starters how many pages are we talking about?


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Also, how many linked images?

And do you really mean images (TIFF, PNG, JPG)? Or are you talking about linked documents (everything else except TIFF, PNG, JPG). And if you mean linked documents, what kind of document files are you using?

Also, what version of Publisher were you using when you created the document and added most of those linked files?

Thanks!

It's my architecture diploma. Format A3, about 70 pages, multiple kinds of raster images used (PNG, jpg fotos, APhoto files), also vector sources (PDF, ADesigner files). Sometimes many images/graphics per page, sometimes only one.

Latest AP beta.
