I have got a big probleme because I don't manage to open an PDF file saved from an AI file that I have not saved.
The file is heavy 9,7 Go.
Please have you any suggestions ?
This is an important file for me.
Best regards and thanks to all
Which version and which system do you have?
What are the hardware specifications?
Where has the file been saved?
Did you save it with "Illustrator editing"?
What happens when you open it?
I use Illustrator 2021
Hardware 1 Mac Book pro Ram 32 Go
Hardware 2 : Mac Book pro Ram 16 Go 2400 MHz DDR4
The file has been saved on a Apple cloud
Did you save it with "Illustrator editing"? >> no, I think, I don't knwo what you mean
What happens when you open it? "impossible to open the file (for the pDF) and "impossibile to open the illustration" (for the ai)
Does the file still open in Acrobat?
What is in it? Why is it so large?
No I can not open either in PDF or in AI.
There are a lot of textures.
Is heavy beacuse there is a lot of mask
In that case you might have come to a dead end.
looks like there is something with the Illustrator application. Cn you reinsall the app and see if it is opening. You have enough ram ...
For the time being, I can use only the 16Go one. The file has been performed with the 32 Go
I am wondering whether there is a way to investigate what can of elements in the file make it so large.
If so, i could then delete them .. if I manage to open it again of course.
