I have a project that has 324 stories.  I have all the stories assigned to categories that equate to chapters. I am using a filter for a single category, and a filter for a rating of stars of 3+.


If I try to publish the filtered content (visible stories only) I get some mixed results. If I leave the boxes for print story titles and dates checked the publish works ok. If I uncheck the print story titles and dates PH3 display almost a blank screen like it was only partially finished in the display and then just clocks forever. I need to abort the program to get out of the endless clocking situation.


This happens very consistently.


I know RM8 is using all the resources now but if anyone has run into this problem and can explain how to work around it I would appreciate the help.


Update,. I did some more experimenting and if I select:

No special sections

Currently visible stories

Chapters: categories

Book options: No stories with no text, no story titles and no story dates

Chapters: no story titles and no story dates.


If I select no indexes everything works ok.If I select indexes PH3 just clocks

Do you have any idea how large the book would be if published. Do you have a lot of images inside single stories? It is being generated in RAM so try closing any programs running while you are generating the book.
