Not saving large files - crashing
#1  shilpa 08-10-2009, 07:11 AM
Hi,

I have some very large books with I have converted from pdf to epub in calibre. I have the 0.1.1 version of sigil and when i try to save the file after editing the file it does save it just hangs. I only happens with big files. files that have 300-400 pages are ok. But i have some books which have over 3000 pages. When i open the file it is bit slow but it opens and i can edit at normal speed too. But when it comes to saving it or opening the toc editor it crashes??? Can sigil not handle large files or is there something i am doing wrong? I use windows xp, have 1gb ram, 2.8ghz intel pentium processor.

You will have to create an issue on the issue tracker and attach the file. Sigil should be more than able to handle large files.

Ok. How do I create an issue on the issue tracker? Is the issue tracker on the site where i downloaded sigil?
Thanks for your help.

When I had those specs, I was having frequent problems with very little memory left for programs - maybe it is the problem in this case as well?

I have laptop with different spec. I guess i can try it on there. But i dont really see how that would make a difference. Also the lap top has less memory than my pc.

if it is a problem with memory, you could try to see if it helps to close all other programs while you are running sigil, and see whether that makes a difference.

I handled a 4,3 Mb ePub on my Acer Aspire One just fine (well it took Sigil a while to load and save) This book has more than 1000 pages.

I tested it with my almost 8MB "Barchester Chronicles" file and it handled that fine, too.

mtravellerh,

How long did it take for you to save the file? When i do it i leave it for more that 20 min and still nothing. Perhaps its my file?

I still need to create a new issue tracker not had time. will do it this weekend.
