‘Could not create pastebuffer memory’ – Error Message
This article relates to Scan2CAD v9
If you see an error message stating ‘could not create pastebuffer memory’ when loading a PDF file, this means Scan2CAD was not able to allocate the required resources on your PC because your PC does not have sufficient available resources (i.e. RAM)
Solution 1: Reduce the raster max DPI limit
The error could have been produced by an image with a high DPI value in the PDF file resulting in an inability of obtain enough memory for the Paste buffer.
Try reducing the raster DPI limit using the following options.
- File Menu > PDF > Import Options.. — Raster Max DPI limit (reduce from default 600 to 300 or lower)
- Try loading the PDF file again.
Solution 2: Quit all unnecessary applications
You could be using significant resources if you have multiple applications open. Where possible, try quitting any unnecessary applications and try loading in the PDF again.
