I have a “Too many shapes” error

You are here:
< All Topics

This problem occurs when there is more than 20,000 distinct “shapes” (a set of connected pixels) in a document. This probably means your document is “noisy” (a lot of small dots everywhere) or there is an image in your document which looks like a cloud of points.

Two solutions:

  • select the “noisy” option in the bottom toolbar
  • select the text areas with the “area” tool.
