I am using InDesign 6 on a PC running Windows 7. One particular file will not let me add or delete pages; when I try, the whole program freezes. I am able to do other things: make edits, export, etc.--just not add or delete a page. I've tried adding the page by right-clicking on a page in the Pages panel, and also by going to the Layout menu and selecting Insert page.
All other files work fine.
I have tried saving it under another name and deleting some images, to no avail. I have also tried saving it to my desktop rather than the server, also with no luck.
I also tried to save it as an IDML file, thinking that might work. That also froze everything up.
What might be in the file that's causing this to happen?
My guess, and it's strictly that, is there's some sort of corruption with a page. Did you use the Page tool at all?
You said .idml also fails, so the next thing I would try is moving the pages to a new file. If that also fails, copy/paste in place all the elements spread by spread into a new file.
