I run InDesign (v. 7.5.3) on a 13" MacBook Pro running with Mountain Lion (v. 10.8.2). I use InDesign on a regular basis, and this is the first time I've experienced this problem.
I've attempted to resolve this issue by deleting my preferences file (~Library/Adobe InDesign/Version 7.5/en_US); however this simply made it so I saw the "Are you sure you want to ..." dialogue box. In this case, clicking 'yes' still results in an immediate crash.
I've done some hunting around in the discussions, and there are issues similar to this one but all have apparently been "resolved" in prior updates / patches. Thus I can only assume that this is a new issue.
Is it specific to one document or all ?
Have you exported the file to IDML to remove the minor corruption from the file.
Would appreciate if you could share the crash log ?
Put the log on Pastebin.com and share the link here.
