How to determine why DOC1GEN Published Templates increase in Size

Product Feature: DOC1GEN
Products Affected:  EngageOne, DOC1 Generate

The parts of a published template are:

1.  The template hip itself.
2.  A number of zip files that contain all the resources for each output device.
3.  Miscellaneous configuration files for EngageOne to deploy the template.

The output device hips are generally the largest part of the published template. When publishing templates from the same strand, the more templates that are added to that strand could add additional resources to the output devices as new fonts and images are added to those templates. This will impact subsequent updates to an existing template when it is republished as the output device will contain these additional resources. The resources for a given output device are cached within the designer repository. These resources can be flushed and regenerated from scratch at any point by using the menu item 'tools -> resource cache management.

When publishing a publication, the history does not become part of the template. The template will contain the hip file and the resources, such as fonts, output devices, etc. There can also be linking to Active Contents which have nested references to other templates that can cause the increase in size. 

Templates can be made smaller by removing the "enable EngageOne" on all the devices.  In this case, the resources will have to be managed manually (e.g. "export resources" from EO Admin, the "Publish resources for EngageOne" from Designer).
