File size for individual objects



It would be nice if individual objects had associated file sizes with them in the OIP. Sometimes I wonder why my file size got so large. I purge and its still large. So I start deleting symbols, textures etc and checking the file size after each delete.

One time, a friend had a huge file. He gave it to me and I started deleting until I found one small piece of geometry that was increasing his file size by 100mb. This was an older version of VW. I haven't had anything quite that drastic recently.

I know that photos need to be reduced in size before bringing them into Vectorworks to make textures. At least VW has a popup that shows you the photo file size when you create a texture. A drawing with lots of 1mb image based textures can drastically increase the file size.
