Rob, One other thing just leaped out of your email at me... Life would probably be much easier and possibly more crash free if you use more (maybe many more) smaller files. You're implying that your project is a single file of about 5677 pages... which I think means that you're ignoring Frame's strong suite, of managing multiple files as if they were one object.
So, if the "project" is 5,677 pages, how large are the individual component files in your book file?
