Re: [NTLK] Out of Heap space creating book in NTK?

how big of a document are you creating? I've created
documents that compile into 5mb pkgs.
I use Windows and either Paperback or Newton Press
1.1, without ever having a problem. The only problems
I hear on the list are from Mac users trying to make
books. And I kid you not, I have probably converted
over 150 txt documents to Newton book format with
never once having a problem. (sometimes a 5mb document
takes awile to set up the indexes, but I have never
had Press or Paperback fail to make a book for me!)
So, depending on the size of your book, you may be
running into some Macintosh limitation.
