Moved to the InDesign forum. They will be able to help you here.
Just tried it here and did not crash. Are you updated to InDesign CS6 8.0.1?
I am on Indesign CS 6 8.1.
Must be something about my system.
Please ignore post.
One generic tip that sometimes helps is to delete the Caches and Preferences for InDesign. This will remove custom workspaces and such, but gives InDesign a clean start.
