By "upload" are you meaning you are unable to create PDF output from RoboHelp?
Or do you mean:
* You are unable to import a PDF
* You are unable to get a .PDF to upload to a server during the process of publishing
* You are unable to add a .PDF to Baggage
Sorry, I should have been more clear. I am unable to import a PDF document into an existing project.
Yes, that is exactly what I'm doing. No the PDF is not password protected. No I am not receiving any error message, it just runs for over 30 minutes and never completed the import.
Try another PDF to see if the problem is general or related to this PDF.
I was able to finally get one to import, but it took over 30 minutes. Any idea's why it is so slow to import? It take this long on all PDF's, even very small ones.
Your project and the PDF are on your local drive?
Not sure what to suggest. Anyone else got any ideas?
Yes they are both on my local drive.
I have uninstalled and re-installed the software again. I was able to import a pdf (test 164K file) into a test project as individual topics and into your project as a combined topic. So, 1-importing works, 2-your project is ok.
I’m not sure if this is normal or abnormal behavior but here is what I have found.
It did take about 30 seconds for it to process that file. So a file that is 200 times its size as the one you were trying to import could reasonably be estimated to take 6000 seconds (1 hour and 40 minutes).
I noticed that the Robohelp program was grabbing a decent amount of memory during the import (about 88MB) but it was only hitting the processor for about 4%. I have tried this with the native affinity hitting both cores on the processor and running it through one core solely and the other with no improvements.
Anyone have any clue if this is normal or not?
