Ok everybody, here is a quick question for some of you large document handlers. What is the largest document (single instance) that you have opened and worked in Epic Editor (file size), and how many tag sets did it include?
So far the largest single instance we have, has been approximately 21.5 megs with 409,000 tags sets, and about 25,000 graphics.
Arbortext claims not to have a tag limitation for the Epic Editor, and I was just wondering what the furthest the envelope has been pushed with this.
Recently, I have't really been counting as I don't deal with authors all that much any more. I know that we were providing some assistance to a conversion house who put out a converted TM that was 20+ Meg in size and took them over an hour to open (after they robbed several other computers to get enough RAM to keep from crashing). I don't know the number of tag sets or graphics used.
The largest file I personally dealt with was 18 meg WITHOUT graphics. Using Adept 7 (bit old) on a dual Pentium III system with 256Mb of RAM, it took over twelve hours to open and parse. Again, I didn't count tag sets.
We have one book that is a little over 26 megs and other then it being a little slow opening, closing and saving, we've published it several times. I was just wondering if any one expierienced a time when there were just "too many" tags in a document that would prevent it from opening, or too hard to work in.
