    Why is the file size so small?


      Why is a certain file of about 40 MB that I created, possibly with InDesign CS2, reduced to about 6 MB when I open and rename it using "save as" in InDesign CS4? The 40 MB and 6 MB versions both look identical on the screen and when printed. This just recently happened with one particular file, but not with a similar file. They both contain numerous linked Photoshop images.


      I understand that using "save as" deletes possible "undo's" and can reduce the file size. Also, the newer version of InDesign could create a smaller file. But 85% smaller? And why no significant reduction in a similar file.


      I don't imagine you often hear complaints about files being too small, but this really has me confused. Anyone ever heard of a similar problem?
