illustrator version 24 vector file is too large
Windows 7 Pro - Adobe Illustrator 24.0.2 (2019)
Opening a 2.7 MB Adobe Illustrator 23 (2018) all vector file and saving it.
Expect file size to remain similar or the same
File size of the new version 24.0.2 results in 260 MB
The file is using Gaussian blur. I suspect it is this. The file attached is the 2.7 MB version 23 file.
