InDesign CS5.5 crashes when deleting empty pages. Help!

Hello all,


I'm having an issue with InDesign CS5.5 running on 10.7.5. I have two empty spreads that I need to delete but everytime I try to, it prompts:


"The affected pages contain objects. Delete the pages anyway?"


I click Okay and InDesign crashes all the time. There are no objects on the page, I've applied no master, unhid and unlocked everything and can't figure it out! Does anyone have a solution?


Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried exporting to .idml? see Remove minor corruption by exporting

    Absolutely. Resave as .indd (preferably with a new name so you don't overwrite the old file) na continue on with the new file. Exporting to .idml has the side effect of removing a lot of stuf that's not needed to open the file (old save data and previews, which get re-written) so sometimes it removes whatever minor problem is happening.
