      That is just the first chunk of text that seemed relevant to the crash. If more is needed I can easily recreate the scenario and get the whole report.


      I initially tried using the latest release of Indesign CS6 (8.0.2) with the same results. I thought that going to a previous version would help. If anyone can make sense of the text above, it would be greatly appreciated.

          Generally, if you're having problem with a plug-in, contact the developer of the plug-in.

            This appears to be a problem with an applescript...

              Hi Danariotti,


              My workmate and I are having the same problem here, with the same report you are getting with Indesign CS6.

              This started with the upgrade to Yosemite, so we trialled the latest update to Smartstream with Adobe Indesign CC 2014 but this caused the programme to shutdown as soon as you start running indesign. I am hesitant to fully upgrade our Smartstream, as it is expensive for an unstable plug-in. The problem we are having is Adobe blame HP Smartstream and they blame Apple and back around again, we don't seem to get much support. Can you tell me if you get an answer to this please.


              Cheers Tony

                Hey Tony,


                I'm having the same problem over here. Continuously crashes every time a PDF is made through SmartStream. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with certain settings, or maybe it's glitchy due to certain specs. This is the Adobe Indesign CC 2014 version that we are using. We haven't upgraded to the 2015 because we don't have the official copy of SmartStream that is compatible with the CC 2015 update. If you know of any fixes, or if this problem is the same for the CC 2015 update, please let me know!

                  I'm having the same issue with the Smartstream plug-in, for both CC 2014 & CC 2015. I have the official versions of both and it's about 50/50 it'll crash when I use it.

                  Oddly enough, the CS6 version works perfectly for me, it's just the CC versions giving me headaches...
