Dear Readers,

Apologies for the simple question, but it's one I can't seem to get my head around.

When colleagues and I do a Save As of an InDesign File and delete out a majority of the content, the file size remains almost untouched? To my knowledge there is no purge function for unused material that might be making the file so large? What is it that lingers in this file size?

It would be great to know your thougts and whether this is even the best workflow if you want to make a copy of an InDesign file but of only a few specific pages?


Many thanks in advance,

Anthony

Regularly doing a Save As and incrementally naming (filename1a.indd, filename1b.indd and so on) is definately a good workflow, to clear out the crud that builds up.
