I'm working on an article and it's only about 15 pages or so (part of a magazine but it's a separate file)
Anyway, I have a text frame with one column. But in the midle of the text are tables. So I thought perfect for splitting this table into two columns.
It works nicely, I can have a two column table within the single column, it's pretty neat.
However, I'm experiencing constant crashes when I am deleting multiple rows, especially across a spread, and also with deleting rows, mostly noticed it when I have a Header Row in the table.
Can anyone test this and see if they too experience crashes?
Now try to delete rows/columns across spreads, including deleting the header row.
I've followed you steps, having a table in two columns that run on two pages and have header row to repeat on the next page. Deleted two rows that ran on both pages, works fine here, no crash. version 7.02 CS5...
The cutting and pasting problem I noticed also. After pasting sometimes CS5 (even 7.02) simply hangs on me (Mac Pro, Os X 10.6, 12GB RAM). Sometimes doing calculations (like 210-140 mm) in a field also hangs InDesign...
Interesting indeed. I posted on another thread topic that I had to rebuild a document, and this was today.
It was all text, with nothing special. I had some Keep Options set in bullets manually as it was necessary.
But for some reason when deleting a line of text at a certain point the program crashed.
I had to copy and paste the text to a new document, and continue from there (including copying content from master pages etc.) but the thing was that the special cases of Keep options I had manually inserted were gone and I had to redo them.
Very strange behaviour. I'm beginning to think this is a more serious problem than I first thought.
Sorry I misunderstood you.
I have a text frame with 2 columns which I set it as an object style.
BUT the document I had to rebuild today has no Object Style. I just tried your suggestion of setting the Frame to NONE and it still crashed.
I have problems with ID CS5 consistently crashing with a document that has tables. Here are all the setups in which it crasehs:
1. Single text frames with two columns in them. Tables are following the columns.
2. Same as before, but with table dragged out to span the columns. Dragged-out tables overlap themselves.
3. Same as before, tables continue from one page to the next.
4. Same as before only text frames now set to one column.
Crashes consistently whenever I try to do anything.
I am now carefully rebuilding the same document a table at a time. It might have something to do with text copied and pasted from FrameMaker or placed from Word.
Yes, I have automatic updates enabled, so I have the latest updates.
I noticed that when I had placed the Word file containing the tab-delimited data, it brought in a Normal paragraph style, which is to be expected. Once I deleted that Normal paragraph style, the crashes seem to have greatly reduced. Mind you, that's in the file I am rebuilding, not in the original file that was crashing every time I tried to do anything.
As a side note, if FrameMaker 7.2 is open, ID slows down to a crawl. I can type a hundred characters and then watch them appear at the rate of a character every 2 to 3 seconds. However, I don't think FM is implicated here as I had it closed during all the crashing.
