comment Transparency for PDFs in Arc
And frankly, exporting to Illustrator is never a waste of time if you have the option and quality is important.

comment Transparency for PDFs in Arc
Exporting to Illustrator would not be a waste of time if OP turns off transparency first, as he mentioned. He could then reapply it in Illustrator.

What sort of layers have transparencies? Is there a raster anywhere in your layout?

comment How do I 'select' using ArcPy?
@blah238, the specific workflow that the OP is talking about involves selecting one OID at a time. Would this speed up that process?

comment Creating Regular points every meter at a county level. Is this possible?
If you use the workflow above, you will produce a set of points with an X field and a Y field.

I noticed as I was testing that Clip_analysis seems very sensitive to the number of objects in the in_features, so if speed is important, you may want to break up your feature layers into a handful of separate areas.

Clip always only uses the selected features. So, if you use SelectLayerByAttribute_management() to loop through your grid cells, using an FID or something, you could easily run a Clip_analysis on each cell.

Could it be a problem with your machine's capabilities? Is there ample space in the working directory?

Very odd. Any luck trying four (or even just one) grid cell? I'll go ahead and give an answer that avoids Split altogether.

On another note, it'd be nice if you improved your acceptance rate by accepting an answer here and on your previous questions.

Sorry - I didn't realize that tool wouldn't work without ArcInfo. I imagine it could be resolved if you have an ArcInfo license. Do you have one? I've never configured ArcGIS licenses, so someone else may have to help with that.

That's really odd. Was it one of the "send feedback" errors? Or did ArcMap keep running?
