Breaking up large document

bill_danielsbill_daniels Member Posts: 277 ✭✭✭
I am trying to break up a large document into two smaller ones for performance reasons.  (Public document: "Electric Glider Winch Prototype) There are two large sub-assemblies where a logical break could occur.   I have attempted this two ways - moving a sub-assembly and moving a drawing of the sub-assembly to a new document.  Either way, I get this:  "An illegal argument was provided, please check your request."

No doubt there are problems with the original document which need to be fixed but the message above doesn't help me find them.  How can I proceed?

    Actually if you directly move the drawing of one of these subassemblies to a new document you can do it.

    If there are a message "An illegal argument was provided, please check your request." you should contact with support
    Un saludo,
