Indesign file is crashing the indesign application. I have tried rebooting my computer; created a new preferences file; opening the file to a new machine and still it wont open. The file is about 4.4gig created in the latest Indesign CC 2015. I have been working with this file for about a month and it got corrupted or it halts from opening.Please help.
hm, such a huge file is pointing at a basic flaw in your workflow.
For me it seems, that you do embed all images.
That's usual a save way corrupting an InDesign document.
Sorry, I have no answer for you how you could avoid the crash.
Maybe you can go back to a backup version you can still open and then un-embed all embedded images and work on from there?
What is your operating system?
4.4 bb is HUGE for a .indd file and usually means the file is corrupt or you have lots of pasted or embedded graphics (which can lead to corruption). If you don't have a backup file, try the blind export to IDML script at Adobe Community: InDesign 6 is crashing when attempting to open a particular document. All others are opening OK. , but don't expect a miracle.
