I bright this up about a year ago, and just wanted to try addressing it one more time...
The issue is if you have an inDesign document that contains a placed inDesign document (indd) that also contains a placed indd, if you use the "edit original" feature, inDesign will crash as it attempts to update the changes to the main document after closing and saving.
Now, closing and saving is the key term, as just as I was about to re-present this issue, I discovered a solution/workaround.
In my previous video, and in the one below, when closing the placed indd, I simply click the [x]. inDesign prompts to save, I click [Yes] and then inDesign proceeds to crash.
Additionally, even if you save first, and then close, inDesing will still crash.
However, if you save, and then return to the containing indd, without closing the placed indd, the containing indd will successfully update. You can then close the placed indd without crashing inDesign.
Thanks for sharing that very helpful information.
I had this week the same issue on Windows XP and share point. I suppose this was a network problem. Normally I work on a Mac or not on a Windows network and I had never this issue before.
You are welcome. I have been dealing with this issue for a year. I can't tell you how often, while prepping a question for a forum I will stumble upon a solution!
