Delete SWF History?

Hi I am fairly new to Flash Development, but have started trying to bypass some of the more tedious tasks I've been running into.


I have Flash CS5.5 and I've noticed when updating BMP Asssets in my files, the file size will balloon in some cases to over 1GB


To fix this I back save it to CS4 purely because it deletes SWF History. the file seems to visually remain exactly the same.

That can sometimes reduce the file size to 1/10th of what it was in extreme cases (usually it's about half)


I then have to update the Publishing Settings to return to the current flash player and Resave it as CS5

That's quite a few steps to reduce the file size on many many files.

Apparently JSFL does not handle saving different versions or updating the flash player settings so I've been stuck doing it by hand.


My question is, is there a simpler way to do this?

    There is the option to clear the ASO-cache:

    Control->Delete ASO files.

    Might help you in case you setup your bitmaps as class files
