I have an idw file that has absolutely nothing in it.

 

The file size if 17.5Mb.

 

Can someone take a look at this. May need to add it to an ftp site if someone has available.

 

Thanks

Paul.

Perhaps a ton of styles that need be purged?

 

You sure it doesn't a view suppressed somewhere?

Perhaps an insane amount of sketched symbols or some really complex ACAD blocks brought in?

No sketch symbols, only standard styles in library.

 

All sheets removed and all Title Blocks and Borders removed.

 

Has got me stuffed.

This seems to be the issue.

 

There is a previous bitmap embedded and is making the file size large.

 

I cant seem to be able to remove this image.
