I have a problem with books taking forever export to PDF. This is related to the problem of book-wide TOCs taking hours to update. I have been using the same workflow and the same set of documents for about 5 years, but in recent months the books now take hours and hours to do what I tell them to do. Is there some way I can see behind the screens and figure out why in the world this process is taking so long?
I have a brand new computer with 32GB of ram. I am working on a solid state drive. So I'm figuring that my hardward is not the problem. Do I need to restart my computer more often? Run a cleaning program? I am at a loss. Any help would be much appreciated.
Have you ever done a Save As and overwritten the file to get rid of the hidden overhead like changes and old image previews?
Try to clean up the files via export to idml or Save As.
