Transcript's save command does not invoke the compact command, but IDEs
may as you suggest. I know the MetaCard IDE does, as does my own, but I
don't use Rev's IDE so I couldn't tell you there.
While the original description of the problem was hard to read without
line breaks before coffee, another possibility that comes to mind is
that the copying and pasting of cards between stacks is causing them to
create new backgrounds with each pasted card.
This alone may no account for the full size, but I don't recall a
description of how many cards there were or the size of the data on them
so we have nothing to compare the amount cited as "undesirable" with
what might be considered at least reasonable.
