ADE will sometimes report that it is out of memory OOM. Generally this does NOT mean that you do not have enough RAM in your computer. Memory is divided up in a number of ways by the operating system. If some part of that is over used then this error can arise. The most common reason is a problem with the drawing routines. ADE uses a certain set of routines provided with the NET framework (GDI+). These routines are very bad at reporting problems and will often report being out of memory even when they are not.

In most cases this error does not affect ADE at all. If you get one however, please tell us and send us the error message. We can then find the place in the code that causes it and do something to stop the error affecting the program.
