    InDesign crashes when trying to open large file




      Someone had a similar question a few days ago but it seemed to have not been resolved.

      I am trying to open a large catalog file in InDesign (228 MB). Every time I attempt to open it, it fails and crashes InDesign with a message about InDesign quitting unexpectedly. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing InDesign and clearing my cache - neither have worked. After re-installing InDesign, the file has stayed open a bit longer (30 secs or so) & then crashes. Any ideas what could be the problem? Is my file corrupt? And if it is, is there an option for recovering it?


      Many thanks in advance for any thoughts or help you have to offer!
