well how do i get a amswer to th problem
3.9 gb usually indicates a problem withthe file, let alone 4.7.
Do you have a lot of embedded or pasted images or vector art?
Do you get an error message when you try to open the file? If not, keep waiting. I've seen files take up to 2 hours to open when they are that large (due to huge amounts of pasted vector art).
Do you have any backup you can open to fix?
First you can tell us how in the world you managed to create a file that
size. There's no way an InDesign file should get that large.
Are you embedding these graphics in the document?
yes i have been inbeding and my 5.5 opens them just ok
now today it says on cc indesign that a plug in is missing i went up and did a update on the cloud to no help
i have 13 g files on 5,5 and they open fast
also i did some expermint and i took a 3.9 file that will open with the new ccindesign and created a new file and added 4 new pictures
just to go over 4 g and sure enought they will not open it gives me a plugin error message
Your workflow is a disaster waiting to happen and it looks like it
Graphics should be linked, not embedded.
also I am runing win 7 with a500g ss drive and a 6 core intet chip and a very large video card
never had this trouble until i went to ccindesign
i have no intrest on liking as that is just as you say a distater wating to hapen
i have been using this method since pagemaker 4.00
Well, I wish you luck, because with your workflow you're going to need it.
I think you've misunderstood Bob's comment.
Embedding images is the disaster.
If this was my project I would immediately unembed the images.
I would then do a Save As to clean the file up.
I would then back up everything.
not a good idea as that is leading to large trouble
not very good methed and will not create a big problem like that
You will be hard pressed to find one person to back up your workflow.
You've been playing with fire forever and now that you got burned you're
blaming the matches.
If you are unwilling to change your workflow I would advise you stay with CS5.5 and hope for the best.
again you don't know any thing about creating good documents

Why did you come here? You're ignoring the advice of very experienced people.
You can continue to work in this foolish manner or you can learn to work properly. Either way makes no difference to me but the more you argue the more you ignorance shows through.
I'm done now. Good luck to you.
