    Crash exporting PDF from CS6 (branched)


      Hi John,


      I found this thread in the forums and thought you might be able to answer my question as well. I have been attempting to export a PDF from InDesign to no avail. It keeps crashing each time. A few weeks ago I had a similar problem with it but was trying to export CS5 .indd files that hadn't been resaved to CS6 yet. Once I resaved them it worked. Now, I'm struggling with a magazine design I create 4 times a year. The file was basically opened from a CS5 file and resaved/renamed with CS6. I can't get it to export. I've tried all of your recommendations on trashing those preferences. It still crashes. Here is my crash report. Any thoughts?

          Your crash appears to relate to CoolType and font rendering:

          This sort of thing usually indicates a corrupt font.

          Try removing all non-system fonts and seeing if you have the same problem. Or paying close attention to the fonts that are used in your document.

            Oh, look, you already did. Ha. Locking this thread.
