Why is one file so much bigger than another?
I have 2 .quiz files I use as templates for quizzes (1 for practices, 1 for assessments). The practice .quiz file contains a title slide, a multiple-choice/single-response slide, and a multiple-choice/multiple-response slide. The assessment .quiz file contains only a title slide. Both have the same master graphics. Yet the assessment file is more than 12 MB, while the practice file is less than 1 MB (as shown in attached PNG).
What's going on? Is there any way to decrease that ridiculously large file size?
Note: I encountered a similar problem with PageMaker years ago. Found out that, even though I deleted large graphics, the file somehow retained the size it was when they were still there. The fix was to do a Save As using the same name (i.e., to replace the file with itself). I tried that with my Quizmaker file, but it didn't change the file size.
