    InDesign CS6 crashes while checking spelling

      Help!! working on a 500 page book divided into tutorials, supposed to be completed by Friday, with tons of screenshots links.


      For the third time, a document which used to spell check just fine, is now crashing InDesign.


      For the first two documents, what I ended up doing was duplicating the file, and then deleting everything after the crash, rechecking spelling until I got enough out that spellcheck would work. Then I added stuff back paragraph by paragraph until I could isolate where the corruption appeared. I then retyped paragraph by paragraph, making sure spellcheck worked. Once I got over the hurdle I could paste in the rest of the document and everything worked fine.


      I have only the standard dictionary, and I don't believe I have even any user-defined words.
