Yesterday I was finishing a book and began the TOC tab process. As I was inserting the tabs and page numbers, Indesign started to crash and I had to force quit the program a few times. I searched here on the forums and found a post a few years ago on a similar (yet not the same) problem.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled, cleared all my settings, and the issue is still occurring.
I am on Mavericks OS and running Indesign CC (2017).
Anyone have an idea of what is going on? It's quite frustrating!! Thank you!
Some people report, this helps in similar situations with ID2017 on Mac:
Navigate to Preference->Advance Type -> Type Contextual Controls and disable the preference “Show for Character Alternates, Fractions, Ordinals and Ligatures”.
For now, it's a good idea to disable "Show Adornment on Text Selection/Text Frame for more Type controls", too.
That's it! Thanks so much!!
Left some errors in a path (Preferences, Advanced), sorry for that and glad you've sorted it out.
