Trouble with the ammount of memory used in empty files still showing thousands of layers as resource use

Hi, we are struggling with a lot of our files where we do the following:

  • We import a huge Design System to a new file
  • We start using assets from that DS and the layers start ramping up (For eg: 900k layers)
  • We delete all those assets used till we leave it basically empty again

When we show the “Resource use” metric, we see that there’s still a lot layers (for eg: 700k layers)

This causes us a lot of problems because we see the yellow message constantly in our files.

We already duplicating our DS and deleting components to use it in another file, but the problem of “deleting but not really deleting” layer persists on this duplicated DS.

Help please?
