Wow! 2.8 Giga bytes?  That is a very large single file indeed. I am not 
surprised that FrameMaker chokes.

If you are truly creating that large a .tps file, then doing the creation of 
the PDF in multiple pieces and combing the resulting files in Acrobat may be 
the only way to proceed.

Curiosity: what is the resulting size of the final PDF file if you combine the 
multiple distilled outputs?

Subject: .tps files too big?

I'm doing a SaveAs PDF on a graphic intensive book and running into a problem 
about the time the .tps file hits 2,800,000 KB. FrameMaker fails around that 
point with an error dialog box that says:

Adobe FrameMaker 11 has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the 
program and notify you if a solution is available.
(Button) Close program

Graphics include .ai files, pdfs as well as PNG files, all imported by 

Anybody have an idea what might be causing this error and/or how I can avoid 
it? The book distills fine if I split it into two parts. Files are on a network 

Thank you.
