I have been regulary getting an 'out of memory' error when i choose to use my bespoke preflight profile.
I have 4gig of ram and run Indesign CS5 on OS 10.6.8.
Does anyone know a work around?
As soon as I select from the basic default profile, i get the beach ball from hell for 10mins, then it kindly lets me know that I am out of memory, sends a crash report to Adobe and then asks if I want to relauch. I'm stuck in a vicious circle. I must of sent my 4th crash report now and no feedback from anyone at Adobe.
If that doesn't fix it, see if you can isolate a page with a problem by making a copy of the file and deleting half the pages. If it doesn't crash, check the other half of the pages. If it does, delte half or thos pages and try again. Repeat until you're down tot he crashing page, then use the same method to isolate a single object.
I have replaced my preferences, but still the problem persists. I have tried switching my view from typical display to fast display before i selected a profile. I thought this may give me the extra memory I needed to avoid the enevitable crash. I learnt that 2 files were indeed rgb instead of cmyk before it crashed again. So I switched them to cmyk and tried again, selected my bespoke profile, but yet again it crashed. I think the problem lies with the file, not Indesign, as i have tried the same profile on a different file and the program doesn't crash and runs as it should. So if in future I need to use said crashing file again, firstly i will need to try Peter's isolate fix method. Otherwise i'll never be able to progress to successful a pdf.
