    InDesign CS6 crashes on large PDF export...

      I have my company's catalog done through InDesign.  We've done this the same way for years.  I've had this file for the last 3 years and have never had an issue exporting the full catalog as a PDF.  I can no longer say that.


      When I try to export the individual sections, I can and have no problems at all.  When I try to export the full catalog, it crashes the program.  Sometimes I'll get a notification that a background process failed, but mostly it just crashes the entire program.


      Here is the crash report generated by Mac OS X : http://pastebin.com/tKfEmjyb


      Computer: 27" Mid 2011 iMac, 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, AMD Radeon HD 6970M, Mac OS X 10.8.2

      InDesign: Version 8.0.1 (most up to date through Creative Cloud)


      If any more information is needed, let me know. 


      Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks...


      I can post the entire packaged file for download if somebody would like to look at it.  It's fairly large as we have lots of parts dimensions throughout that are handled by PDF from SolidWorks.  The InDesign file is 204 MB itself.
