I have a newsletter which is an empty shell from a previous issue at 1.2megs. I have a 256K MS Word document. which contains a small picture and half a page of text. When I paste this document into my newsletter its size goes from 1.2 to nearly 25meg.

The culprit seems to be the small picture in 'microsoft format' embedded in this document. Text goes in no problem.

Any suggestions as to why?

Any way to list objects in a publisher document and/or display their properties so extranious object can be eliminated and the hogs identified without having to back out step by step until saved file size reverts too normal?
