Viewports and file size


I'd like to have the option to cache a screen-resolution version of viewports, with full print-resolution versions automatically updated when printing.

Right now we have the choice between 1) caching viewports (normally set to at least 300 dpi for good output), which results in enormous file sizes, or 2) not, which makes it difficult to work with viewports as they have to be regenerated frequently. Both are time-consuming situations. Large filesize makes saving your work, which I tend to do every 100 operations, a lengthy process. Updating viewports whenever a file is closed and opened is also very time consuming, but I tend to chose not to cache viewports because on balance this option takes slightly less out of my day.

I believe that a screen resolution cache (72 dpi?) would solve these problems, and I think it should be implemented on a viewport-by-viewport basis.
