    InDesign CC is crashing with Exception Type EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) and Code KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS


      It's been happening all day, and I can't find any rhyme or reason as to why it's happening; usually when I'm just typing along on my merry way. Research into these exception types and codes reveals a big fat zero.


      Is this a problem with my Mac? My template? My master pages? My paragraph tags? My graphics? ...My Adobe karma?


      The details are below.

      It was working just fine before I started developing a new document, developing a template as I go.  Nothing has changed in my system -- no Adobe updates (Flash or otherwise), no Mac updates that I know of, nothing new. I sent a co-worker a copy of the file, and it also made InDesign crash on her system, but I don't know what caused the crash from her end.


      It happens when I'm typing, when I copy and paste text or graphics, when I add text that flows into the next text box, when I tag some text as a particular paragraph style... probably other times, as well, but I have forgotten all of the times it has given me errors.


      I am new to InDesign, so it's incredibly frustrating because I don't know if I accidentally tried to make it do something it's not supposed to do, or if there is something wrong with [my system, my template, my styles, my brain].


      I can attach the entire error report, if that's helpful, or send you the file I'm working on... What would be most useful?
