Project size mystery

I created the projects I’m talking about with Scriv 2.1, but now I have 2.8.

I had a project with tons of images, and the file size was very big, about 25mb.

I liked the way I had organized that project, so I copied and renamed it. Then I deleted all of the images to start fresh with a new project.

Although all of the images are gone, and there isn’t even any text in the folders, the new project is still 25mb. How can that be?

Things that you delete inside a Scrivener project end up in the project trash. Look at the bottom of the Binder and you will finf the Trash. You have to empty it, inside Scrivener, to completely remove them from the project.

Thank you, that was the problem. The file is now 87k – MUCH smaller!
