I have a project that is getting pretty large. Large meaning lots of library assets and a pretty complicated folder structure in the library. The FLA file itself is 3,700kb and exporting a 630kb SWF …not too big. I’ve done much larger.

Starting yesterday when I save the FLA , the saving dialog appears and then I get a not responding on the dialog and I have to ctrl-alt-delete out of the flash. I googled around and there’s a big thread on the adobe forum about it, but no real solution. People say its fixed in CS5 .5 but that isn’t an option for me. Has anyone experienced this?

have had projects of similar size in Flash CS5 and never had an issue, phew! Have CS5 .5 now and don’t have this issue either…

Is the file in dropbox or anything?

Try to copy the stuff on the stage inside another new blank file and safe it there, it worked for me most of the times. It cleans out the library that way. There is probably some nasty asset that slows down the save process.

Yeah I doubt this is a problem with the Flash IDE but more something to do with your code. Problem is, if your code is intended to be sold for I doubt you can post it for someone to confirm.

Catch-22!

forgot about this thread, sorry! I upgraded to 5.5 and the problem went away soooo I’d say it was an IDE problem. When I was googling a fix I wasn’t the only one with this issue
