hard time for some users

Over night my files have grown twice, I suspect because of current update. Maybe merging history and versions to a single feature caused that, but still some users close to 100MB limit will have problem. I was able to make a trick with copying workspace, and it worked, but I was far from 100MB.

I also find a bug, don't know if it's related to current update, but I've tracked it now. I had a file that grow over night, so I've copied workspace. I made that without opening that file and I've removed it immediately. when I opened that copied file, sketches that have images inserted were maked red:
Nothing is missing... then why they turn red?

    I've also observed the same, one of my documents grew from 4 MB to 15 MB, in other words it more than tripled in size. And there were no explicit versions or branches in that document.

    @øyvind_kaurstad don't worry after copying workspace it should have size as before update (with exception of files with drawings, drawings now weigh more, so when copying, they will grow, and if not copied, you'll see yellow marked icon to refresh drawing, even if model did not change at all)

    I know, and I already copied it and deleted the inflated version. However, I think perhaps that this should have been handled automatically.

    File with redish sketches is now ok.
