 Tip: Reduce your VX file size for Email

One way to reduce your VX file size for Email transsmissions is to rollback the history to the base datum planes or suppress all of the items in history tree. It will even zip to a smaller size. I tested this with a 2.4 MB (zipped to 1.3MB) file it was 768K (zipped to 300K) when either rolled back or suppressed. If you have multiple objects, you will need to pay attention to the interdependencies of objects when replaying histories.

Now that is a very useful tip, I shall spread the word You can reduce the file size even further by clearing the facet data (smoothness of shaded display). Go to View/Clear Facets.
