The crash report isn't terribly helpful-- just shows it's text related. Try the blind open export to .idml script at Adobe Community: InDesign 6 is crashing when attempting to open a particular document. All others are opening OK.
When I try the following script within InDesign, it still opens the corrupt file, then does the normal crashing.
I tried running the script on software program AdobeExtendScript Toolkit, and when I run the script it states: "app.open is not a function"
Should we change anything to the script below?
var _file = File.openDialog("InDesign-Datei"); // Selection of a file
if(_file != null)
var d = app.open(_file, false); // Open the file without showing it
d.exportFile(ExportFormat.INDESIGN_MARKUP, File(_file.fullName.replace(/.indd$/i,'.idml'))); // Export im IDML-Format
d.close(SaveOptions.NO); // Close without saving
Thanks Larry. I tried that, and then ran the script, then...
For some reason the InDesign file is still opening... that's odd because there is a script that says: var d = app.open(_file, false); // Open the file without showing it
It opens, then crashes as usual.
Please email your InDesign file to email@example.com and I will take a look at the document.
If the file is larger than 10 Mb, you can zip (and password protect) the file and upload to Creative Cloud account (or Dropbox) and send us the document link.
