Dear colleagues,

as stated in my headline: I tried to export a huge sdlxliff file (16,000 words) with X3 (9.0.736) in which I put in multiple comments (~ 552 words; in the target segments). When exporting the completed file, at the end of the export the process crashes (only the process; not X3), leaving me behind with following message:

"XLIFFFilter DeleteUnusedSDLXLIFFComments Line 8330.

But, when opening the same project in X2 and exporting the same file, no crash occurs and I can open the exported sdlxliff file in Studio and even create the Word target file, but all comments are gone. What should I consider with the comments in general? Is X3 not able to process more than a certain number of comments / comments words?

Perhaps I have to mention, that the sdlxliff was created from a Word file containing text fields (in fact, it is a converted pdf file).

Any ideas are welcome, thanks!
