I want to share a bug with you, that is not only present in the GUI*, but also with scripting.
Some text in a text frame containg a table.
The table consists at least of one cell with cellType CellTypeEnum.GRAPHIC_TYPE_CELL.
The contents of that cell is a graphic frame populated with an image.
Now duplicate the text (together with the table) to a different text frame's insertion point using the method duplicate().
InDesign CC-2015 v18.104.22.168 will crash immediately.
InDesign will not crash, if the graphic cell will not contain any image.
Link to cellType enmueration:
InDesign ExtendScript API (11.0)
*To test the bug in the GUI you have to enable "Drag 'n' drop" text editing in layout view (Preferences > Type).
Select some text including the table, hold the ALT key and drag a duplicate of the selected text to a new insertion point.
InDesign will crash as well.
Workaround:Duplicate the text frame containing the table, use method move() to move the text with the table to the desired insertion point, remove the duplicated text frame.
