    Is there a bug in import tagged text when gradient swatch used?

      Hi,

       

      In InDesign CS6 (8.0.1) on both PC (Win7 32bit)  and Mac (OS X 10.6.8) we are getting a crash when importing tagged text that has some of the text styled with a gradient swatch.

       

      Here are the steps to replication:

       

      Create a new document

      Create a text box

      Add some text

      Colour some of the text with a gradient swatch

      Export the text as Adobe Tagged Text

      Create a new text box

      Import that tagged text into the new box (using File->Place)

      InDesign crashes.

       

      Has anyone else noticed this problem?  Is it a known bug?

       

      This is a problem for us as we use import tagged text to retain styling in our system.

       

      Thanks,
