    Where are these Bookmarks coming from?! They're growing like weeds, and I don't think I added a single one! -- InDesign CC

      Issue: Bookmarks

      .

      My typical workflow for a text-heavy project involves several (or many) cycles of exporting sections of text with tags; editing in TextWrangler; reimporting the revised tagged text, etc. I've done it this way for many years without trouble.

      .

      In a recent troublesome case, I would open a section exported as tagged text for revision and find many many lines (100s) of Bookmark codes at the end of the file. After making the necessary revisions to the file, I would delete these BMs before loading the text back into the layout. The next time I would export and edit this section as tagged text there would be even more Bookmark codes at the end! Where are these coming from? Yikes!

      .

      Needless to say, with this many Bookmarks cropping up in the file, there was no way to open the Bookmarks panel to delete them; clicking on the panel even froze ID requiring reboot...

      .

      Investigation of bad document (28.5 Mb) led to a solution, but I need to learn where this problem is coming from...

      - I exported tagged text from every section of the problem file

      - I edited every text file to remove the Bookmark codes at the end

      - I made a brand new template file; no graphics and no text

      - I imported every cleaned-up tagged text file into this new layout

      - I saved and closed (4.5 Mb)

      .

      This file seems to open, close, and perform as expected! What I couldn't get to happen at a critical point in the schedule was to do this clean-up to the master layout....
