Project Documentation? crash

Project Documentation? crash
February 27, 2019 09:42PM
Hi all.

I can easily print documentation in small batches. If I try to print an entire project, WD crashes. Wondering what the best way to save project documentation into a view-able file to be used for copyright purposes? Seems like there is a limit when printing to a PDF (around 1000 pages+-).

Hi Jim,

same here. Printing a full documentation even of a medium sized project will crash. However, cutting the printout into smaller parts is possible. A very old nuisance. There are several of them disregarded for many years. I don't have the slightest idea why "customer experience" is that underestimated in Montpellier. It crashes as well when choosing rtf-output.

Kind regards,

Hello Jim

Unfortunately it is just another in a list of unresolved "scale" errors that occur in Windev when projects get over a certain size and I don't think PCSoft are ever going to fix these things.

I have not been able to do a project file comparison for many years and over the last year or so I have been unable to run the inbuilt option to check and modify file structures in my test data after a change to the analysis without a crash.
I have to save the analysis without generation, close Windev, re-open Windev and just open the analysis separately to generate a new analysis, close Windev, run WDModifc on my test data, delete the cpl folder and then re-open Windev and the project.

Alt S followed by Ctrl Shift W are my best friends and we do our thing about every 15 minutes

I assume they are trying do everything in memory and just run out and if this is the case then their memory management must be very poor as I have 32GB of ram plus whatever is needed in the page file.

I regard it as the - small - price to pay as everything else is very good smiling smiley

Thanks guys. I appreciate your input. I TRULY love working with these tools (since V7.5). As usual after 30 years playing this game, you just have to be smarter than the average bear and a work-around will happen.

Regards and come on spring.
