|Summary||0011139: Large documents get corrupted|
|Description||I have been creating a report on a vacation lasting 25 days, and inserting many pictures into the document. The first problem was that occasionally a picture with associated caption and box round it would disappear. As the document got bigger (about 7/8 pages) then the cursor started jumping around the screen and pictures again disappeared, then elements started resizing and the whole thing became unstable.|
|Steps To Reproduce||At this stage I had created 8 pages and imported text from several text files and inserted about 30 pictures each in a rectangular box and with a caption (gruoping the three item for each picture.|
|Additional Information||The attached file has lost some pictures and when I open it I cannot do anything with it due to the cursor randomly moving about.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|

the document, without the images, works perfectly.
by only having the .sla, it's hard to judge how it behaves on your computer with all your images...
The described behavior is typical of "ouf ot memory" errors.
To avoid memory related issues, we always recommend :
- to avoid using unnecessarily large images : a 100Mb image on a A4 pages is already too large, 30Mb is quite sufficient. And remember we always reason in term of uncompressed data : a 5Mb jpg file can translate to 100Mb of data once uncompressed.
- to split a document into multiple documents if it has lots of images, long text chains, or lots of pages
To split you document, two solutions :
- move temporarily images to another folder, so you can open your document without loading images. Then split your document and move back images to their original place afterwards
- open you document in a text editor and split it by removing the necessary <PAGE>...</PAGE> lines.
Closing is this is a duplicate of already known issue (0004520).
