File size issue

Recommended Posts

I have a problem printing and exporting to pdf that I suspect might be related to file size.

I have a drawing set that when exporting to pdf, the floor plan sheet crashes the export process. (Preview on Mac is actually the program that crashes).

The entire drawing set as a pdf (excluding the floor plan sheet) comes to 2.4Meg.

The floorplan sheet alone comes to 5.3Meg.

The export to pdf sequence manages to get the sheet created in preview most of the way, but then preview crashes before completing the process.

If I try to send the sheet straight to the printer, the results are hit and miss.But I really need output to be pdf.

Any ideas?

Check the dpi settings in the sheet layer, document preferences, and the print dialog.

Also, is there an image somewhere in the floor plan?

good luck.

DPI settings are still on 300, where they have been all along.

I don't think there is an image in the floor plan.

I did notice an odd thing: I have a bunch of duplicate classes that won't purge that all begin with NNA#2_XXXX (Where XXXX is the name of the the class I was using elsewhere in the document.)

It doesn't offer these as empty classes for purging. I didn't create them, and I don't know why they are in my file.
