Indesign 6 hangs when I try to create a new InCopy story assignment. The InDesign file is not that complex, but even a new story box with only a few letters results in a spinning ball freeze. Hangs before it asks for assignment user.
Seems to work fine in a brand new blank file, but using an existing file causes problems.
What are the contents of the existing file? Are there master pages imported from other sources as templates? If this is a file specific issue then try breaking the file into smaller parts. Copy individual contents to a new document and then try working with InCopy to see if you can reproduce the freeze issue.
I have systematically rebuilt the file, slowly adding elements back in. Seems to be working.
Created a separate new file and now in both InCopy and InDesign I get the following message when I try to check out or update content.
Adobe InCopy is shutting down. A serious error was detected. Please restart...
Finally deleted the file I had been working on, now InCopy won't launch at all. Looking for the uninstaller .
