try this :
1 - copy all your elements by select all and right click then copy
2 - open a new Project and right click on the white Stage and go to Paste Special and click Paste All
then save your project
Note : if you changed the main size of your Stage in your current project, when you opened a new project first change the new Stage Size too and then do paste
Thanks for the immediate response...
I tried doing as you said...the program doesnt respond anymore, but it does that often, when selecting many elements.
Gonna try leave it for tonight and see if by tomorrow it will have selected everything or just crashed.
thanks again for the really quick response : )
Were you able to save at some point during the project, or is this a file that has never been saved? It sounds like it's a problem with your computer running out of swap space, not a problem with Animate in particular.
It was weird....yesterday when the problem arose, more than 2/3 of my computers resources (ram, cpu, etc.) were not used.
Ended up leaving the program on for the night...this morning when i came into the office, everything seemed to have solved itself, I managed to saved, restarted, and my project is just fine.
But yes i did have various previous versions of the project saved (only a cuople of hours of work would have been lost) to fall back on in case of emergency.
Could this be caused by a high number of text elements (between 150 and 250) on the stage (all being animated)?
I've had the very same thing happen to me.
Save, save and save again :-)
Luckily, I'm in the habit of saving work as I go along, as I work on files residing on web servers so I HAVE to save them to see the changes!
I also tend to preview my work a lot in Edge and always save before previewing, "just in case"!
As for the high amount of elements, maybe that would cause it - I have never figured it out and my computer has enough ram and disk space to fit a small army. Working with programs such as Edge, I tend to do a lot of restarting the moment I sense something may be astray - better safe than sorry...

150-200 isn't that large of number of elements. That being said, this is probably a good point to mention to our entire community that we would love it if you all would participate in the Adobe Product Improvement Program. The information we get from this program helps us as a development team to understand what types of compositions you guys are creating, and the more data we have, the better we can understand what you guys are donig. (We can then answer questions like: "Are most of our users using 15-20 elements or 2000-3000 elements?" and test appropriately.)
Glad to hear it resolved itself.
Thanks for the support guys!
Will check out that:
Adobe Product Improvement Program
Best wishes to all! : )
