Published file size

Jan 11, 2022


I've noticed when publishing courses that the published size varies unexpectedly so I carried out a small experiment with one course. I'm publishing for LMS SCORM 1.2 in Storyline 3.

So, I published this one course to version 5.1 which produced a zip file of 139Mb. Without having closed, changed or saved the course, I published it again to v5.1a this time the zip file was 142MB. I repeated this for the third time to v5.1ab (with absolutely no changes to the course, closing or saving) to achieve a zip file of 135Mb. As this was originally an exercise to reduce the size of the published file, I can't give a concise answer as to how much I've reduced the file by.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what might me going on here? Am I missing something obvious?

Many thanks
