Increase the file size limit for exporting to electronic PDF in Word.
Currently, it seems the latest version of Word supports a maximum file size of 40MB when exporting electronic PDFs. This appears to be an arbitrary limitation, as the error message states: "This version of Word can't be exported to this type of file because the file is too large. Generally, a file that is larger than 40 MB is too big to export".
I don't remember this being an issue before PDF conversion went to the cloud. It would be extremely helpful to be able to convert big files — I'm currently having issues with finalising my mixed-media PhD thesis.
Thanks for your consideration!
