Cannot make PDF with more then 2000 pages

Post by Carl » Wed May 11, 2005 6:34 pm

I uploaded a file to your FTP named WmfFiles14000.Zip and a Txt file. When I try to create a PDF from 1000's of WMFs the PDF library crashes inside User32.dll. I get the same crash using Test_xMF.exe. Works printing to Distiller.

I would like to be able to do 4000 pages.
Currently my tests with Test_xMF won't go over 1000 pages.

Hi Carl,

Thanks will look into - but I suspect it is a memory/resources issue which is an overhead/consequence of our advanced compression/optimisation techniques.

I dont think you use our classes/templates for Clarion - but in these we offer a switch called 'Multi Volume' spanning - which effectively automates the generation of a predefined number of pages and then starts a new file - stitching all the parts together when the print job is complete.

Suggest you look at the Clarion manual and perhaps mimic something similar for now.

We have also just introduced in the driver some advanced memory management techniques and will discuss internally trying to add this to the libraries next.

thanks

I saw the spanning stuff when I converted to 3.0 and wondered why it was there. I already merge in other PDFs when printing WMFs so I think I avoided it because I had enough going on. I'll wait and see what you figure out. From my testing 1000 pages seem to work.
