Indd file size optimization
The filesize of the .indd file increases with every new linked image and is not reset after deleting old images from the workspace.
If you use the save as function and overwrite the file, the size of the .indd file is much smaller (like 190 MB before and 12 MB after).
InDesign should clean up the file with every normal saving process !
With each new version - InDesign files are becoming more and more bloated. I'm fed up with more and more features being added when the basics aren't right - some of us have work to do and don't have time to trash prefs every five minutes and then wait 10 minutes for a 3+Gig file to open which in earlier versions would have been less than 500megs! Please address this!
