Handling large files

Are there any special settings in IntelliJ for handling large files?
I'm working with an unfortunately large .java file generated from a wsdl that's 40mb and 860k lines in length and IntelliJ seems to fail silently when parsing it and just returns all the symbols inside as not found, even though the file is valid.
Anybody have any experience with this?

This is IntelliJ 9.0.4, build 95.627

Hello Adam,

The maximum size of files parsed by IntelliJ IDEA is controlled by the idea.max.intellisense.filesize
setting in idea.properties. Note that although you can increase the value,
a 40mb file will cause major performance problems in IntelliJ IDEA.

Hello Adam,

There were some fixes made in IDEA X to make it better support huge files. We didn't test it on 40 MB files though. Could you please give it a try?
