In your case I would delete the affected spread. Export as IDML, open the IDML save as INDD and add a new spread again.
// I have seen, that you are unable to delet. So export as IDML first.
If this does not work, create a new document and drag the correct spreads into that document.
Be aware that the new document has:
- The same Baseline Grid settings,
- no paragraph style
- no character style
- no swatches
- no object style
- no master pages
Or 2–6 have to be exactly the same as your old document has.
Thank you for responding Will.
Does it typically take a LONG time for an IDML file to open in InDesign? I've never worked with them before. I did Export my odd document as an IDML file to my desktop. When I try to open it in InDesign, it just sits there spinning and nothing opens. I was afraid I'd have to create a new document and drag all of the content into it, but was hoping to avoid that since it's so darn large!
Oooo...actually, I was just able to delete those two funky pages. not sure what the difference was between yesterday and today, but I had the Page Tool selected and was able to delete both pages one at a time. I WILL remember the Export to IDML feature though. THANK YOU!
Instead of dragging the content, you could try the Move Pages dialog, and just exclude the corrupt spread from the list of pages to move.
