IDW File size increase drastically.

Has anybody had a problem with the size of their IDW drawing increasing by a
large amount. We had a file, weldment idw, that had a hole chart and views
on it. The file was 5 MB at this point, we went into it, deleted some
callouts, and added just a couple of dims and it jumped to approx. 40 MB. I
checked the versions to keep setting and it is at one and I am at a loss as
to what happened. I just used Mikes Maintenance program and it reduced it
to 18 MB but what happened to only 5 MB??

Did you add any bitmaps? I know you said that you are keeping the versions
to 1 but did you compact anyway?

BTW what's Mike's Maintenance program?

Mikes Maintenance program can be found on my site (see sig) on the iCode
page. It compacts, unreserves the file and checks the files health

No, there were no bitmaps added, as I said in the previous email all that
was done is a couple of callouts were deleted and some dimensions were added
so it doesn't make sense why it would increase in size so drastically.
