    Any way to avoid large dbtmp files...

    Darjay11 Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I'm fairly new to InDesign and I'm creating a vbscript to add text to linked textframes, styling by applying stylesheets as I go. InDesign is producing a massive dbtmp file as the script runs.

       

      The file appears to be so big as it is storing undo levels for every single change to the document and I'm able to undo every text insert right to the very first insert....

       

      Is there a way to prevent the temp file growing so big?  After 40 pages of text and a 5Gb temp file the PC falls over,  and I need to have over 80 pages.

       

      I have to import the data line by line as opposed to placing it in one hit as there is conditional styling based on values in the data and I don't know if InDesign can do this another way...

       

       

      Thanks

      Darren
