    InDesign freezing when attempting simple functions

    madeontheline

      I am hoping there is someone out there who can help me. InDesign is repeatedly freezing when I try to add/delete  a page or make facing pages. This appears to be happening with just one file - a 29 page document. I am working with CS6 from Creative Cloud on a MacBook pro. This has also happened on a Mac Pro tower with 10gb RAM. I have to force quit every time.

       

      I have spoken with Adobe online and tried the following fixes, none of which has worked:

      http://blogs.adobe.com/indesignpost/2011/03/quick-tip-how-to-fix-corrupt-indesign-files/ I have tried to save as an IDML (technically creating a new file) but CS6 then couldn't open the new .idml file.

      http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/troubleshoot-damaged-indesign-documents.html I have tried each suggestion on this page, including removing preferences.

      I have also installed this script >  http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/indesign-crashes-blank-dialog-boxes.html

       

      I have also uninstalled and reinstalled InDesign. Recently, I tried to make a new document by moving pages 2 at a time. My last fix was to setup a facing page document and copy and paste all text boxes but no hyperlinks or linked images. I now have a 30+ page facing page doc but I cannot add/delete/change any pages without indesign freezing. I cannot make a printable document without this function. I'm out of ideas. Is there anyone that can help?
