DocumentEditor not usable with many pages (+500)

Good day,

we use the DocumentEditor (20.4.50). We also need to be able to import and edit large files. Unfortunately, this is not possible with large documents (eg 500 pages). When importing, the editor loads for several minutes.

After it has been imported and saved in the database, initializing the editor also takes minutes (if it is possible at all, the browser usually freezes).

What can you do there? What optimization approaches are there?

Hi Marco,


When opening the larger file, the document editor takes some time to load. Furthermore, we have worked on a feature related to optimizing SFDT file size, which will be included in our 2023 Volume 1 release, expected at the end of March.

This helps reduce the SFDT file size relative to a DOCX file and provides the following benefits,

  • File transfer between client and server over the internet gets faster.
  • The new optimized SFDT files require less storage space than the old SFDT files.

 

You can also track the status of the feature using the link below.

Hey,


I upgraded to the new Version.

It's better, but still not usable.

Imported a Word Document with 600 pages.


- Uploading worked, around 1 minute.

- Saving to the server and generate PDF not working. Was aborted after 3 minutes.

- Reload Page on the Browser, Page loads 2-3 Minutes, then the Editor is showing with the text. But really slow.


Do you have a idea how I can opt

Hi Marco,


Uploading worked, around 1 minute.

When opening a larger file, this may cause some timing delay because document editor take some time to load a larger document.

Saving to the server and generate PDF not working. Was aborted after 3 minutes.

We couldn’t reproduce the reported issue, so please share the input document that you used.

If you have any confidential data in your Word document, we recommend that you create a ticket with Syncfusion support.

To create a support ticket:

Reload Page on the Browser, Page loads 2-3 Minutes, then the Editor is showing with the text. But really slow.

We suspect you are opening the document in the created event, so it takes some time to load, so when opening a larger document, please open that file in button-click mode.
