    Indesign crashes when placing text from word

    Y Rose Level 1

      I am trying to place text from microsoft word into Indesign. The text is 67 pages long with lots of footnotes. When I place the text a window comes up that says "processing character attributes" with a bar below it that moves very slowly, and then at one point it just freezes or it says 'indesign has stopped working....'

      I tried placing the text with styles and formatting and by removing styles and formatting and the same thing happens.

      Any idea why this is happening? I never had a problem placing text from word before.

      I have Indisign CS5 ME version and the text is in hebrew.
