I reset the preferences and I still get the same issue.
Thanks for the help though!
Tried recreating, but I can delete fine. This happens on every file? Working off a server or locally? Have you ever tried letting the app go for a while. I'm noticing a lot more spinning with CC, but about half of the time if I let it go, it resolves. Sometimes it can take 5 to 10 minutes.
To answer your questions, it seems to be every file that I've worked on for the last couple of days. I am working on the file locally. I did what you suggested and waited about 15 minutes and it just kept spinning. I checked the CPU and it was using 100.4% (not sure how the extra .4% above the 100 can happen...).
I did create a brand new document and it seemed to be fine.
I made a new copy of the document I've been working with and deleted every piece of content. I was able to delete the page just fine now. I think there's an issue with a bit of content, but since the doc is 16 pages and lots of images, figuring out what the culprit is may take a while.
Thank for everyone's help!
Have you tried saving that doc as an .idml? Sometimes that will fix document corruption.
Alright, after some quick deleting and testing, I found the jerk causing the issue. In this image, circled in red, is the word "Quick". Notice the tiny "u"? Earlier today I noticed it when I was making changes. InDesign wouldn't let me change the font size or leading. I didn't think much of it because I was able to delete it and replace it with fresh text from a new text box. I didn't think much of it other than it being a weird but/quirk I couldn't do much about. Because I was having issues with the original doc, I had made a copy of it before I had deleted that tiny "u" for other testing and realized that was the common factor between the two documents in the end.
The issue has been solved, at least for the spinning pinwheel problem.
If anyone wants to download the InDesign file with the tiny "u" intact to see if the same issue presents itself for you, I'd love to know if you get the same result. Here is the link to the file. All you need to do is delete any of the two pages and see if it does the same thing. InDesign gives me the spinning pinwheel when I try to save the file as an .IMDL so you'll probably need InDesign CC 2015 in order to open it.
I'm assuming that it was just some font corruption issue of the "u". If anyone has any other ideas as to what it could be, I'd love to hear them.
I have a 204-page text-only document and I am trying to delete the blank pages in order to set up for EPUB. Every time I try to do this, I get a spinning wheel. Takes several seconds before the action is completed.
I quit InDesign, followed your directions on restoring the preferences, renamed the document and relaunched. I tried again to delete a page and the same thing occurred. Any other ideas? Thanks a bunch.
