Rare Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 Error?

Today, we were trying to merge several PDFs into one file. The grand total of all PDFs was 2.66GB.
Acrobat failed, with the error:
“The document could not be saved. This file is too big for the current operation.” However just yesterday we were able to make a 2.71GB PDF without trouble.
There do not seem to be many sites that list this error, so I am posting so you know you are not alone. This bug is real people.

  1. What OS platform – Mac OS X or Windows?

    did you do a File->Save or a File->Save As?

    Are you current with 9.1.4?

    We need a LOT more information to be able to help qualify the issue you may be having.

    • It is Mac OS X 10.5.7, with Acrobat Pro 9.1.2. The Mac is a MacPro 2 x 2.66 Dual-Core Xeon with 6GB RAM.
      The operator did a File->Save.
      After posting we managed to Do a File->Save As.. and it worked as a PDF/X. There may be some mild corruption in one of the source files which causes this error, but I have not confirmed this.
      I didn’t know 9.1.4 was out. Will check the site.

  3. I encounter this error regularly – ever since I began running CS 4, about a year ago. Using CS 3 I could easily generate very large pdfs – over 4 gigs – but cannot with CS 4.
