During the commercial break from the drama of TechWR-L...I would like to ask
a Visio question.

I recently created a Visio flow/sequence chart using screenshots. I opened
them using Microsoft Photo Editor, then copied them into Visio (cause it was
easier at the time). This ballooned my file size to about 40Mb.

If I use the Insert>Picture>From File option, will this help to keep my file
size down? I am thinking it will, but I thought I would ask during the
commercial break.

Hope all is well in the world.
