I'm exporting a book to pdf for print, ID runs through most of it without a hitch, but sometimes it'll get caught up on an AI file while it says "writing JPG file," or "Reading xx.ai" I know I can convert all the AI files to JPG or PNG, but I prefer not to and many of them need to be updated regularly.
I've tried to optimise the AI files by embedding photos into the charts and whatnot. but it'll still get hung up.
and most frustrating of all, is that i get no error message, the app just stops responding and i have to force quit.
does anyone have an idea of what could be causing this, and how to avoid it?
