 Alan, FWIW:   It is my current experience that Excel & Word won't do an Undo after any save.  So, It seems that the past changed data wouldn't be saved; however, that still doesn't guarantee that there isn't unneeded editing data in there.  "I'll have to try your suggestion on one ov my files, but I don't know if I have excessive bloat, so this may be a blind alley.I sent Bob an off list suggestion to compress pictures individually.  I *did* see a file shrink when doing that over a bulk compression. Thanks.73, Steve, K9DCI

I presume that Powerpoint is like Word and Excel and stores many previous versions so that you can use the undo button.  I've not done this (or used MS Office for many years) but I'd suggest 1) opening the presentation, b) set versions to 1 in something like preferences, iii) save, and IV) reset versions to whatever you like.  Sounds good anyway!

Does anyone know how to find bloated bytes in my APRS PowerPoint presentation? (its on aprs.org) I just gave two recent APRS talks and although I am editing down my long-winded usual APRS Power point, it seems to just keep getting bigger.I have COMPRESSED all the images and it should only be about a 4 Meg presentation.  But over the years it has grown and is up near 11M. Is there a way to see the memory associated with each slide and go attack the problem that way? Again, the content should be small.  But something in all the copying and saving over the many years has accumulated a lot of excess baggage. Respond to Bruninga at usna.edu if you have an idea. Bob, Wb4aPR
