Does the ArcGis Maps Compilation sync run slower the more the "Contents" list grows, even after syncing

I think I have noticed that if I don't delete already synced content (I have been adding many layers from files) the time to sync increases. I have been adding KML files to my artboard and at first the sync took the average amount of time. I have not been deleting items after they have been synced so as the list of synced layer increases I think I have noticed an increase in time to sync. At first, a file synced in 1:30.00 but now a file takes 15 minutes. There has been a steady increase in time IMHO.

Does this habit cause a slowing down of the sync process? Should I delete a sync layer after it is synced. I have not been doing this because sometimes I need to tweak the KML outside of ArcGis Maps and then resync it. I then just pict the content from the list. This alleviates the steps needed to add it back into the content sync list because I don't have to look for the file on my computer. Thank you in advance.

Hi Mikel, 

Thanks for your questions. Could you provide some more info to help look into this better?

- What version of Adobe Illustrator and ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Extension are you using?
- Could you please elaborate some more on the part below of your workflow? I want to understand better the steps you use to pick from the list - I assume you are adding a layer from file in compilation window each time you need to resync your tweaks/ updates? In that case I would expect that you would need to look for it on your computer.

But maybe I am missing something so it will help if you could kindly elaborate on this.

Thanks in advance for your help.
