I hope your images are on the topics. Images in Topic Notes are not supported in the PDF viewer export.

If you are using the standard image in a PDF export. What size sheet are you using for the PDF export?

Yes, my images are in the topics. I made some tests with a small file

It works perfectly well. That's really because I created a 500 Mo file. It never completes upload...
I'm in trouble because we are a consulting firm and we made all this work for a big customer. They want a PDF. And we have no solution.

I suggest using Right click Send to Linked Map and splitting the big map into several smaller maps. With the parent map open View > Linked Maps and you will see them all as thumbnails. You can have more than one level of linking.

Try Select All and print or export to PDF. I think there is an option to print pages to one PDF file in PDF Xchange although personally I use FinePrint and PDF Factory.

It's usually not a good idea creating very large maps with attachments and links because the heavier,perhaps the more difficult it is to handle. I'll suggest you reduce the file size of your pictures first and then reattach after removing the original attachments. Break the maps into smaller units and use a link to get to the smaller maps from the central theme map.However i know that if you reduce the image sizes first it will help the map remain smaller. If want to know how to reduce your image sizes without loosing picture quality so much,please let me know and I'll help with a guide.
