Recently (in Frame 7.2) I had a large book with 50+ chapters, minimal  
graphics and a total page count of only about 300. I could not  
generate a PDF of the whole thing in one shot. I ended up making PDFs  
in thirds, then assembling the parts in Acrobat. A hassle, to be  
sure. FM was able to generate a complete TOC and index of the beast,  
but not a unitary PDF.
