    Indesign cs5 freezes when an effect (e.g. gradient, drop shadow etc.) is applied


      Hi there.


      I am running InDesign cs5 on a Mac OS X, version 10.6.8.


      I'm having a continuing problem where my program freezes solid when I apply an effect (eg. putting a gradient on an object, applying a drop shadow etc.). Nothing moves and I have to force quit the program. When i reopen, it recovers the file to pre-effect state. I re-apply the effect. Boom - it freezes again. Force quit. Repeat. Forever.


      Any suggestions/thoughts on what I can do to fix this problem? Cheers!
