Hello, Using IV2012 SP1, I needed to generate a bracket that had has silkscreen graphics on it. So in the part file I started a sketch/insert image and using the decal command projected it onto the desired face. The image is a BMP file that is 5meg in size. It took me several attempt to get this right and all appears to be good. But upon completing this very simple part I noticed the file was 48meg! I went into “links” and I noticed that the BMP file was shown 7 times. The BMP file is showing “yes” under “resolved” for one instance and “no” for the other 6 instances. I can only “break link” one instance but can do nothing with the other. I’ve deleted the decal and stated over but it still shows up with the 7 instances.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hope it helps.
Jon, Thank you for the input. But how do I do that? I seen the code in you link, but when I have the part file open in Inventor and then select VBA editor there are several things that display. I’ve spent some time today trying to research the sequence of selections/commands or process but I’m stumped. Is there a command lists/selection that a novice like me can fallow? Thanks!
Jon, Thank you for your link. With you code and a little more learning on my part I was able to RUN theyour code and it work! Thanks again.
