[aprssig] Ballooning APRS ppt files?

PowerPoint has a habit of doing this.


Only way I’ve found is to copy everything to a new presentation (easily done, just selecting all on each page), as the bloat seems to be internal to the file rather than anything actually on the page.

Does anyone know how to find bloated bytes in my APRS PowerPoint presentation? (its on aprs.org)


I just gave two recent APRS talks and although I am editing down my long-winded usual APRS Power point, it seems to just keep getting bigger.

I have COMPRESSED all the images and it should only be about a 4 Meg presentation.  But over the years it has grown and is up near 11M.


Is there a way to see the memory associated with each slide and go attack the problem that way?


Again, the content should be small.  But something in all the copying and saving over the many years has accumulated a lot of excess baggage.


Respond to Bruninga at usna.edu if you have an idea.
