1.7.0.206- Publisher huge file

Recommended Posts

Is this normal? I created a flyer on Designer with 2 artboards linked to Publisher for front and back side printing, but the publisher saved file size is 1.58GB?

"Save As...": For now you still need to enter a new file name to make the effect effective.

Affinity seems to use increments to speed up the save, but this will increase the file size. Usually saving as a new file will significantly reduce the file size.

Nope. Saving as a new file didn't reduce at all.

Fde101 is correct, the problem is that the file caused by embeds a copy becomes larger.

It is not enough to explain your file size of 1.58 GB. The sum of the 15 used links is about the half of your .afpubs file size.

If you do some processing, such as changing the bit depth, it will get bigger. I think osang or APub changed the link image.

Well, the only process I did is duplicate for printing multiple copies. Most of the time I use InDesign or QuarkXpress for laying out like this and the file size is small...and working in a printing press I'm curious how this software will hasten my workflow.

Wow, nice trick. I just did that to my file and it lost 100 MB in size. Windows 10.

Something I noticed about the huge publisher file size; once I updated the 'Designer' linked file, the file size increased, and If I replace the linked file with the same file then saved--the smaller publisher file size--from 1.58GB to 633.7 MB.
