Simple QGIS 1.8.0 not printing to PDF. Suddenly stopped. Is this an error or something. the resultant PDFs are blank pages.

When i file print and use a pdf printer it creates blank docs. when i export to pdf it crashes. when i export to jpeg it does not print map.

What does "Suddenly stopped." mean? Did the exact same project work before? Same settings? – underdark Mar 6 '13 at 14:55
Ok added a few more OS layer from the same set. Should be no major difference. – Ger Mar 6 '13 at 15:20

I think it was the same old issue of lack of memory. In the end i reduced to 200dpi exported as jpeg and coverted to pdf after the fact. All in all i have it wrote down to too much information and too small of processor for this it was massive.
