Publisher files have got smaller. Is this OK?

Recommended Posts

Hi - since the last upgrade Affinity Publisher files on my iMac files have become smaller once I have made small changes. For example one project was 366MB and is now only 189MB with only minimal changes made. Is this right? Should I worry?

Do you have a exported version before and after the size reduction to compare?

Link resources are treated differently and this will reduce the file size. I think there is a note on the Publisher beta forum but cannot find it right now

As Gerard O has said, we handle linked images differently now, so the reduction in file size is likely due to that.
