    Hi All

    I am new to this forums, but been doing signs for years. I have a problem. I reformatted my computer , still using XP. Now after reloading flexi 8.1 When i save certain files its saving them way to big,, I dont mean dimensions, I mean file size. Like before a basic black sign, say 20 in wide by 36 in tall would be around 500kb in size. Now when i save them, it takes minutes to save and says its compressing them and when i look the file is now 5.4mb No way a basic black file should be that large. What is wrong? Before I reformattted I had a full color 4ft by 8 ft design and it was still only 4mb or so. And once it saves it so big it feels like it takes forever to open them. No idea what went wrong,, same fonts as before and all. No new added programs.
    Thanks in advance for any help. It will be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Are you talking saving as a flexi file or exporting as another format.

    I'm not sure what it could be. Hopefully someone here will know.
