Teamwork project to solo project seems bloated!


I have converted a large team-work project to a solo project.

I was expecting the project to trim-down a bit and and basically run faster, however I can not see a bit of difference. Is there some teamwork baggage that comes with this process? If so how can I unload it?

Normally every once in a while even the BIMcloud Server trims the project (it trims project history when everyone does a Send & Receive), which can save you a lot of space already. Beside that, saving a PLN should also reduce size, as Archicad is optimizing its own work.

What came into my mind that you might have a large Embedded Library in the project, which can increase the file size a lot (and cause performance issues both in Teamwork and Solo). Another idea is that you are running Archicad 25 and this might affect you:
