I am using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009.I have a project files suddenly file size becomes @ 10 MB after saving. Even Titlblock size is 7 MB.


I had installed a latest update over my system as well i tried to clean a file as per below thread.


After doing this file size reduced to KB. But if open it again and saved then file size go to MB.


Is there anyway to fix it??

How is size determined when a file is saved?

09-24-2012 12:20 PM in reply to: YM_99

My daughter is an artist and loves this software.  

She is being asked to creat art for posters at school but when she saves the files they are too small to be used.


How does she save files so they are as large as possible?

Is there setting preferences or saving options that make larger size saves possible?

WHat do you reccomend she do to save the files ina large as possible format.


Thank you.  -Brian
