What does this mean?
I copied the previous file, made corrections to the new file and the tried to "EXPORT" to create a new EPUB (Fixed Layout ) PDF and it just crashes.
And please clarify...this is an EPUB export, not a PDF.
I would recommend taking this Lynda.com online video course (you can get 10 day free trial) so you can be clear about the differences between PDFs and FXL ePubs and the advantages (features) and disadvantages of each:
It would also be worthwhile also using the IDPF validator or this: FlightDeck
What I meant was I did a SAVE AS to the previous file. With this new file I
then made corrections and then went to EXPORT and tried to create a EPUB
fixed layout PDF. This step is crucial so I can view the file before I can
There's not such a digital format as an "ePub Fixed Layout PDF".
When you have finished with your EPUB, to proof before you go to
publishing. you make a EPUB fixed layout.
The suffix would read:
Name of file.epub
You then can preview this pub, look for any mistakes to correct, and if
alright, export to publish.
Does that make sense?

No, I'm afraid your message/workflow doesn't make sense.
Which format are you exporting to:
1) EPUB (Reflowable)
2) EPUB (Fixed Layout)
3) ADOBE PDF (Interactive)
4) ADOBE PDF (Print)
5) Publish Online (with or without a downloadable PDF)
Does it validate on (for example) the IDPF validator?
Can you please share your file with me so that i can have a look and investigate the exact cause of the crash. Please mail it to me on email@example.com
Also, please confirm what version of ID are you using.
