Huge file size remains after changing resources to 'linked'

Recommended Posts

A simple A4 flyer that contains around 20 (albeit hi-res) images was created from new. The file size of the document was around 750 meg, so I changed all links from the default 'embedded' state to 'linked'. Re-saved the document but its still 750 meg - I assumed it would reduce significantly now nothing is embedded?

Everything is embedded, currently, even if it is shown as Linked. Serif has acknowledged this, and it's been discussed in many topics in these forums (both Windows and Mac).
