I am trying to export a mxd file to a pdf or any other image format. The map has some gradient fills, Euclidean buffer rasters, transparencies, etc. The .mxd file is about 4.75 mbs. I am having issues exporting the map to a dpi higher than 200 and this even takes a couple hours to complete. When I try to export at 250 or 300 dpi, ArcMap eventually crashes and I am left with a mxd that I can't export at a reasonable image quality cannont and create a electronic copy that is easily accessible for those without GIS.
