When the crashreporter pops up, click Crash Data, upload to pastebin.com and post a link here. We'll look at the crash report and give you some clues.
Why does no one listen when I say "post a link here"? The forum becomes painfully unnavigable this way, I fear. Perhaps you could edit your post before someone replies to it?
142 stack frames deep -- that's fairly deep. Anyhow, you're running 7.5.0. First step is to upgrade to 7.5.1. Does that fix it?
It looks like some validation check is failing on the file you are placing -- I suppose we should have known that from the start. Try roundtripping both files (the to-be-placed and the other) through IDML?
It might have something to do with links and perhaps EPS files in particular, but that might be a false trail.
Anyhow, upgrade to 7.5.1 and if it still crashes I'll look more closely.
Thanks John, I'll give it a try...
"Why does no one listen when I say "post a link here"?"
Ooops. Yeah, it's the listening thing.
I'll work on that.
Thanks for the idea, I will give it a try.
You ran them both through IDML as well?
Yes, I exported both files as IDML.
I am going to call the main file "file1" and the file that I placed "file2"
I then saved file2 as an .indd file
(I tried to place the file2 IDML file in file1, but it would not let me place an IDML.)
I placed file2 in file1. Then opened file2, and made an edit.
When I saved file2, that's when ID shut down.
Thanks for having a look...
