I just got Indesign CS6 a few weeks ago and I'm using it on a new macbook pro. I had exported to pdf a few times with no problem. Today, I tried the same thing and Indesign began quitting for no apparent reason. I already tried restarting my computer. Any suggestions?
It could be a corrupted object (image, PDF, etc.) within the InDesign file. Try an old technique: Export pages 1-6 out as PDF and see if it crashes. If it's OK, export pages 7-12, and it crashes. Now you know the problem is in pages 7-12. Then export pages 7-9 and see if crashes, etc. until you find the page where the problem is. On that page start eliminating objects and see which object it is.
Hmmm...maybe I should try that. InDesign causes Acrobat to crash about half the time when I export it out as an Interactive PDF. The only thing is, it has always happened on all my ID files and it happens sporadically. If it crashes, I just do it once or twice again and it works. That would be the only reason I wouldn't think this will be my issue.
I'll go through the process a few times and see what happens...thanks.
