Please explain what you mean by losing text, and tell us your version of ID and OS.
I have Creative Cloud and I am working on a Windows 7, 64-bit operating system.
When I package a file, the newly created ID file is missing text boxes. Sometimes entire pages, other times a single column. I am not losing any links or any other type of elements.
The longer I work in the file and re-save, the more text boxes that seem to self-erase. I'm hoping their is a simple fix to this!
This sounds like a bug that causes ID to lose track of the geometric bounds of objects. To confirm, go to one of the pages where things seem to be missing and select all, then check the width and height fields in the Control panel. If it's the bug, the values will be impossibly large or small, and listed in scientific notation.
If it turns out to be this, the only way I know to fix it is to delete affected pages and replace them. Export to IDML would also be in order. See Remove minor corruption by exporting
Thank you very much! I will be testing that out this week.
