    Are you able to create the new file in the Indesign?


    Does it happen with all the file or with one file only?

    The very first thing you need to try is applying the 7.5.2 update.

    Before you conclude you still have a problem try emptying the inDesign Recovery folder and restart ID. If the recovery data was already corrupt it would continue to crash ID even if the problem is otherwise resolved.

    Should be a folder in your user library: Hard Drive/Users/<USER>/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/<Version #>/<Language>/


    Move wahtever is in it out, or even the whole folder.

    Whoa, it's Shushobhan! Long time no see!


    In any event, that KB doc is not going to help. It is specific to SING crashes, and this is a font-related crash.

    We can say with high confidence that SING problems clearly manifest in crash reports as crashes in the SING and TIN modules, and that's not the case here.


    (I think I'm going to edit the original post and move the crash report to
