HELP! Can't get past the "Print-ready File" screen.
Working on what is basically a graphic novel. I've tested out the size/layout/print already to make sure everything works.. even ordered a test book.. worked fine. But the final product is 530 pages, and the PDF is 920mb. I uploaded to the FTP just fine, but it errors out when I try to make a print-ready file.
I've tried multiple times. No luck. I've flattened the PDF and made sure my font (for page numbers only) was embedded... and changed to PDF version 1.3... re-uploaded... still no luck. Then I split up into chunks and avoided the FTP and just uploaded files that were ~200mb each and put them in order... hit the "make print-ready file" button... still errors out.
Lastly, I ONLY uploaded one of the ~200mb files by itself and it worked. Then I tried two at once and that worked! So that tells me there is nothing wrong with the formatting... just something to do with the file size. Is there anyway around this? I've been toiling for 2 days trying different formats and different ways to upload the same thing and I'm getting nowhere. Tech support tickets remain open, even called customer service to no avail.
Please help. I'm losing my mind.
