I see several others are having issues with InDesign CC crashing. Just downloaded it (OS 10.8.4, plenty of ram, etc.) and it crashes whenever the text tools is selected.
Unfortunately, I uninstalled the previous InDesign version, and now can't even see that as an option on Adobe. Would like to download the previous version again so I can keep working while this problem sorts itself out.
You can download CS6. Just log into your Creative Cloud account and go to https://creative.adobe.com/products/indesign Scroll down a little bit, and under the picture, under "In this version" you can change the version you want to download.
