I am creating the Visio diagram from scratch and size of generated diagram is 17.02 MB. When I open the generated diagram file in Visio 2013 and use the “Save As” option to save it again with new name the size of file reduced to 3.03 MB. Please let me know why its so. Is there is any way to reduce the file size programmatically.
- Reduce the number of grouped shapes.
- Remove unused master shapes.
- Split a multiple-page drawing into separate drawings.
- Remove unused themes, data graphics and styles
Please find the attached zip file which contains sample project for your reference. I am using the same way to create more pages of similar type with different types of shapes.
The zip file also contains the generated visio diagram named “SampleOfLabel.vdx” and diagram created using “Save As” option “SampleOfLabel-SaveAs.vsd” when generated Visio diagram is saved as Visio 2010-2013 drawing format.
Please suggest the way to reduce size.
