There isn't a file size limit but there is a time limit. If the file takes longer than 10 minutes to convert to text the program assumes there is an issue with the file and cancels the indexing of that file.

If possible I would recommend that you keep the PDF files to just a few thousand pages. It'll make the whole process, including subsequent searching, much more efficient.
