I have an indesign file that ive been working on in cs6 and it says that the file is 32 mb. there is really nothing in there that should be making the file so large. I cant do anything in the file because in-design basically completely freezes over when i open this file. any ideas of what I can do?
Start by doing a Save-As. You should save it to a different folder so as to not replace the one you have in case this doesn't work, and you can go back. That will clear out some of the bloat in a file, but there's no way to know if it will work unless you try it.
If that doesn't work, try exporting in IDML format, and then opening that IDML file and saving it.
P.S. I think you mean 32 GB, right?
If it really is just 32 MB, that's tiny.
