Go back to Activity Monitor and click Sample Process and save the file, upload it to pastebin.com, and paste the link here.
If you have Quark2ID installed, though, that's probably the culprit (Markzware).

What happened when you tried pastebin? Whatever you did to get that on github, please don't do it again, that was horrible to decode -- oh, I see, you fixed it. OK.
Hmm, well, that is not so helpful since everything is inside these anonymous GetPlugin functions.
To solve that, instead of Sample Process, please View > Send Signal to Process: Abort (SIGABR).
Then you should get a normal crash report. Please upload that one.
Sorry for the hoops.

Yes, though not because of the crash report per se.
Version: 188.8.131.525 (7000)
Upgrade to 7.0.4, it fixes bazillions of gotchas.
Looks like your crash is some sort of corruption of some master page object that throws ID into an infinite loop between the master page, layout, and application framework modules...all triggered by Live Preflight. So you could turn that off, too.
But upgrade to 7.0.4.
Ah, I did that upgrade on my work computer. I'm at home and haven't. I will try that right now.
And try to tuen off the live preflight.
Thankyou thankyou !!!
I think turning off Live preflight might have done the trick.
Gonna try and do some editing, but I will report back.
Well, that really just hides the problem. You should get to the bottom
of it. I would like to see a crash report from 7.0.4 if you can manage
to make one happen.
Here is the new crash (with live preflight on):
Here is the new crash (with live preflight off):
OK, well, sounds like you've got yourself a genuine bug there. You
should open a case with Adobe Support, at
INDD file available to them via ftp...
(I'd particularly appreciate it, because we have been seeing a lot of
problems with Live Preflight, and we'd really appreciate Adobe
improving the stability of it dramatically, and every little bit
helps... Especially since ours are not so reproducible, so Adobe's
having a heck of a time tracking them down).
But at least you have a workaround! You could probably also narrow things
down and determine which Live Preflight check is making it go boom.
I was hoping for more insight from that crash but it does't really
want to provide any...
Thanks so much. I will get in touch with adobe first thing tomorrow, and I will definitely report back.
Oh, hey, I'm confused... In post #9 you included a "crash with live
preflight off," which I missed the first time around. Are you saying
you get getting beachballs without live preflight? Or did you just
force a crash for the sake of comparison while InDesign was idle?
Because that second crash looks like a perfectly healthy InDesign that
isn't stuck doing anything...
Ah, I posted both for comparison.Thought it might help.
I don't get the beachballs when preflight is off.
The file worked for about an hour.
I went in and re-linked all of my master pages. At first, there was a master
for each chapter, so say chapter 23 linked to 22, then to 21, to 20, etc
I changed them all to link the chapter 1 and the problem seems to have gone
Thankyou for the help!
