I am a sketchup 2014 (free version) Mac user and I have found that when I project textures onto an object my file size increases by quite a few Mega Bytes. I find this only happens when I project a texture and not when I add a texture without projection.
For example if I have an object, lets say a cushion which is only 1MB and I add a texture that is 102KB, If I don’t use projection the file size will stay around 1MB. However if I project the texture onto the object then the file size will go from 1MB to 4MB or sometimes the increase can be more.
Is there anything I can do to prevent this.
Thank you in advance for any help and advice
