Hello all,

we had a problem with one teamwork project that was getting really big and slow to work with. The file on the teamserver was about 4 gigas and a .pln made of the teamwork file 1,1 gigas. We decided to split the file in two (model file and then a separate layout file) to make it smaller. However, even after deleting the layouts from the original file, it is still 4 gigas on the teamserver although a .pln made of the teamwork file is now only 400 megas. Can anybody tell, why the teamwork file on the teamserver isn't any smaller although the .pln made of the file got 700 megas smaller after moving the layouts to a separate file?

Thanks for the answers!

In case of teamwork projects where model and layout are split up, question (haven't tried this in ages): doesn't it make sense to publish PMKs and bring those PMKs as drawings? Especially if there are people working long-distance, but not only for that —I would guess it reduces transfer, calculation, status check time.

We do this in our office most of the time.
The publishing of PMKs has the nice effect that you can choose which new plans to publish, and which not, so unnecessary updating in the layout file is avoided.
