    InDesign crashes when updating linked files

    FergyMac Level 3

      Using the links pallet to open an Illustrator or Photoshop file, edit it and save it, return to InDesign, InDesign will crash every time. Reopen InDesign the link will show as being modified (yellow triangle with exclamation mark). I can then update the link and continue working.

       

      InDesign CC2015.4

      11.4.1.102 Build

       

      Mac OS X 10.11.6

      MacBook Pro

      2.8 GHz Intel Core i7

      16 GB ram

      AMD Radeon R9 M379X 2043 MB

       

      No change in behavior after replacing my preferences.

          Fixed it!

          I removed the scripts I had added over the years and it no longer crashed when updating links . . . for one try. Then I replaced my preferences again and it seems to have returned to normal operation.

           

          So, if replacing your preferences doesn't fix the problem, try removing all the extra enhancements you've added and replace your preferences again.
