The Eggbot Control extension stores a modest amount of control data in your Inkscape drawing files. This information is normally invisible to you and should be considered benign. However, before sharing your drawing files -- especially with other Eggbot users -- you may want to consider removing that control data from your drawings. Removing it is straightforward, using the "manual" tab of EggBot Control. Select the Manual tab, select "Strip plotter data from file" from the drop-down list, and then click Apply.

What sort of data is saved in the drawing files? Which COM port (Windows) or USB device (Macs, Linux) the Eggbot was last connected to; the plotting state in case of a plotting pause; and similar mundane information.
