I'm working on a project take requires a copious number of sections and section sheets (More than 5000). I am suffering from publish times of approximately 3 minutes per sheet. I have run into the layout tab maximum of 255 while working on this task and have a number of drawings with 250 layouts. I have heard that the number of layout could have an adverse effect but have reduced the number of layouts all the way down to 16 and still had plot times close to 3 minutes. I have also reduced the size of the surface being referenced to an absolute minimum with no noticeable effect. During the attempt to export one of these drawings it ran for a significant amount of time(4 hours) but just ended up not responding and I had to end the task. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
