>(after seeing a recommendation here).
>TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [pool size=64720]

>There is no line in texmf.cnf that has 'pool' in it so I added one at the end

it has  lines

% Max number of characters in all strings, including all error messages,
% help texts, font names, control sequences.  These values apply to TeX and MP.
pool_size.context = 750000
pool_size = 750000
%pool_size = 125000
