What do you mean it was upgraded on line upgraded from what to what?
We have used PM for ever, starting with PM2 to present 6.52 and no problems. Suddenly PM will not open past the PM window - keeps collapsing - no messages. Have reinstalled in different folder to no effect. Can still open Photoshop, Illustrator and other prehistoric programmes. Running Mac 10.2 with Classic on ImacG3. Have composed the job (380 Mb) but some disturbance started when building the index. Managed to save and convert to PDFs but now cannot open original to edit copy. Any advice is welcome
You have a 380MB PageMaker document??? Oh wow. And you lasted this long. Amazing. I would never allow my PM documents to go past 10MB each if I could possibly avoid it. PageMaker wasn't knicknamed RageMaker for nothing.
Try moving all your images to somewhere where PageMaker can't find them and then open the document telling it to ignore missing links. That might get it open. If it does, immediately do a Save As to another file name. Then do a "slide show" to visit every spread. Finally, do a diagnostic recompose.
I remember the terms but have long since forgotten how to actually do those things.
Again, save as to a new name. Close the document. Put the images back where they belong and try opening that second copy.
My guess is that at 380 megs, those images aren't linked, they're
embedded. If so, that job is toast.
What Bob said.
Never ever embed images in a Pagemaker file this is a recipe for disaster.
If you get it open, relink the images, un-store them and save-as.
that's a big if.
