      Hey all,

       

      I've seen a thread about this before, from a few different folks, but I haven't seen a satsifying answer. If I've missed it, please reply with a link to that thread.

       

      I get this message when I try to save a document I'm working on:

       

      Indesign error capture.JPG

       

      While doing a saveas does work, it's a nuisance to have to keep making new files. It's not open in any other program: I will receive this message even when I only have InDesign open, with just one file open in InDesign.

       

      I'm running Windows 10, but this happened to me frequently on Windows 7 as well.

       

      I'm running the most updated version of InDesign as of 2/1/2016.


      This happens on all files, at random, not just one or two.


      Any help? Here's the same question from October 2014: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1591435#expires_in=86399993&token_type=bearer&access_token =eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsIng1dSI6I…
