Size of .graffle file Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I've just created an OmniGraffle document which has seven A4 pages, each of which has ten boxes and nine connecting lines. I have applied background colours to about half of the boxes and coloured about half of the lines. I am not using any images.

When I looked at the .graffle files generated I was aghast at its size: > 96 megabytes and roughly 2.65 million lines of XML.

Closer examination revealed several large blocks of what looked like base64-encoded data.

The size of the document strikes me as being excessive: is it a feature or a bug?

I'm using OmniGraffle Professional 4.1.2, version 127.10 on Mac OS X 10.4.9 on an Intel iMac.


P.S. For obvious reasons I refrain from attaching the file...!
