Just telling you something that has worked for me, both onscreen and in
print. I do not suggest that it's the most elegant solution, but offer it
as a potential remedy to a crisis (to me a 135Mb file IS a crisis).
IME, often the culprit behind the file-bloating seems to be not so much

I welcome the opportunity to learn a better way.
