@mrdon: That's certainly a good point, and I don't know off hand. I can tell you that memory issues have never come up in all the reporting I've done on design tool apps, but it's worth a circle back with the vendors to push them on that issue. I will get back with some feedback.

Hi, Beth, Thanks for circling back on the question. I don't think it's a major concern as well bit it's a question worth asking.

Hello Mrdon, Mobile memory requirements vary greatly depending on the size of your drawing file. In general we have found that a mobile device with 1GB of system RAM (not to be confused with storage memory) can open a file up to 30MB. Our research indicates average file size for drawings at 3-12 mb. If your file is larger than that or your device has less memory, this may restrict the size of file that can be open. We are looking at other methods to help solve this mobile memory limitation problem and expect to have a solution this year.
