Try to save your file to idml format, then open it and save it as an InDesign document
Tried to do that, and while saving to idml the whole program shut down again.
Should I uninstall and reinstall ID on my PC?
if indesign crashes only with that file i believe reinstall ID doesn't solve the issue.
I read some post of adobe staff:
..."email your InDesign file to email@example.com. We will take a look at the document.
If the file is larger than 10 Mb, you can zip (and password protect) the file and upload to Creative Cloud account (or Dropbox) and send us the document link."...
I think they can help you
Create a new file using the same dimensions, margins etc as your corrupt document.
In the corrupt document go the pages panel and go the menu for the Pages Palette and choose move pages.
In the move pages dialog box you can select to move the pages to your new document.
See if the problem persists in the new file.
Thank you, Eugene. That seemes to have done the trick. There's a table there which is clearly messed up, but since the new document works and doesn't shut down the system, I can fix the bugs in it.
That's great it worked for you! Best of luck!
