Just some thoughts: software is not perfect. That's why there are updates from time to time. You may use the bug report form to tell Adobe. https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
In my case, ID CS6 crashes when closing it with a (already saved) document open. If I close the document first, ID won't crash.
On my colleague's case, ID CS6 crashes, when right-clicking a PDF in the links pane. Any other file type there works fine.
These are things we seem to have to live with.
Is the 8.0.1 patch for ID installed?
Have you tried Remove minor corruption by exporting?
If that doesn't work (and I suspect it won't, but do try it), you mentioned you can move the frame to the pasteboard. Can you delete it from there? How about if you unlink it from the text thread (click the outport of the frame before it, then clikc inside that same frame to break the thread at that point). If you can delete the frame you should be able to add a new frame and relink if the frame iteslf is corrupt. If that doesn't work, try exporting the story to InDesign Tagged Text, then re-import it replacing what's there.
Thanks, Peter. Yes, latest update is installed.
Dragging the text frame to the pasteboard allows me to do anything to it, including delete it. When I delete it and create and drag a new text frame back to it's place on the page it behaves the same as the old text frame ... crash on resize or any other action.
Haven't tried exporting the story to ID Tagged text. I'll try that and report if it fixes the problem.
Exporting the story to ID Tagged text then pasting it back into the story worked. Thanks for the help...
Any thoughts on what may be the culprit here since it happens often. We receive our text in Incopy format, import it into a document then unlink it. What might cause it to become corrupt? It was OK the first time I manipulated the text frame and caused problems when I went back through to do some fine-tuning of the layout.
Why would the text frame cause problems on the page and work fine on the pasteboard?
Did you try exporting to .idml? Please do that first.
Funkiness can be really hard to track down. I honestly have no idea why a frame would work on the pasteboard and not on the page.
I tried exporting to IDML first which didn't resolve the problem.
I'm not surprised, but it is important to do that as the first step, just in case.
