very large setting.xml

We have a fairly large soap ui project that was originally a 'regular' project. We converted it to a composite project since we now have several people working on it. Once we did that I noticed that the setting.xml file is almost 500MB in size and we get out of memory errors all the time now as well. I tried google but only found a reference to deleting <xml-fragment> tags but there are a lot and I hesitate to try to script this. Any help here?

  • Since the file ballooned to 10 million lines long, it was not possible to edit manually on my end. 

     

    Smartbear had a fix for this so I'm back up and running with a 27k settings.xml file again.

    What actually such a big content in the settings? Open it and take a look at it.
