9197Huge File Size in MS Word
- Feb 16, 2012Hi Notetabbers,
Please help me pare down the size of a huge Word document file.
A member of my astronomy club sent me the monthly newsletter in a huge file
size Word document for posting on the club's website. The typical size for
the newsletter is under 2MB. This month's issue occupies over 20MB of file
space, yet the number of pages is about the same as usual (nine pages).
I examined all the graphics. A total of 25 graphics use only 376KB.
I opened the document in Open Office Writer, then saved it in ODT format.
The ODT file size is 19.7MB.
The editor of the newsletter says he didn't install any new printers
recently, and the configuration on my PC hasn't changed either.
If you would like to examine the DOC file, its name is "2012-02 XXIII
final.doc". I have posted it at Dropbox:
Name: Ray Shapp
I temporarily changed the password to *2012-02-asterism* (notice all lower
Can anyone see what's causing the nearly ten-fold increase in file size
compared to what's usual.
Thank you for your help.
