We have a very large .CHM file compiled from Robo 7 HTML and
we are looking for ways to reduce the size of the file. We have a 1
KB image that appears one thousand or more times throughout the
project whose only purpose is to indicate the places in the various
topics where hot spots to prompt documentation appear. For example,
in a topic that documents a screen with 10 prompts, this image
appears 10 times. The repeating image is a small arrow next to and
pointing to the hot spot.
Does this image increase the size of our compiled project by
1K x the number of occurrences? Or does it only add 1k to the
project because it only appears once in the image directory?
If this will significantly reduce the size of our project, we
are also curious as to the easiest way to remove all references to
this image. Can we simply remove/rename the image file in the image
directory? Or do we need to physically edit every topic and
manually remove all the image references?
