Hi
Has anyone else had trouble with their models saving larger and larger even though the geometry is not changing? I thought it was just one corrupt model and reloaded to a saved back up but now I am seeing the same thing with a different project. The second project was an earlier 2015 model that was converted to 2018 but the first was 2018 from the start. I would post the model but both are giant college rec centers. The same model changes from 62 MB up to 1.28 GB. I am on an imac pro with 64GB of ram and 18 core.

Does it grow if you simply press s.. ?

Does it grow if you simply press ctrl-s.. ?

(no modification of mesh)

Is Layout running at the same time or just Modeler?

I just opened an object in 2018.0.7 modeller (81.6mb) saved as another name....exact same size.
Did an incremental save....same size.
Took into Layout, saved....same size.

That sounds like that might be the problem. I will check into and let you know how it goes. Thanks!
