Why is my file so big?!

@nathanletwory The problem is this is global… I don’t think there is any way to clear data from a particular plug-in (?) - that would be useful.

But also, it looks like Snapshot adds data to everything - is that correct?

Correct on all three accounts:

Saving with plug-in data unchecked is global. Plug-in -specific data purge would be very useful ( probably a good idea to log that). And taking a snapshot attaches data to all bits that are snapshotted.

Hi Nathan - what I mean is, it looks like, anyway, all objects get snapshot data. For instance positions are restored for all objects that exist when a snapshot is taken, unlike NamedPosition… So the more objects the more file bloat regardless of whether one cares about the positions of most…

That is what I said (:
