I wanted to add that I downloaded the trial for InDesign CS5.5, and am having the same problem. Don't know if that sheds any light on things or not.
Im using CS3 & every print request crashes it. It works fine to export to PDF to print, but I hope this is the future of my life. I dont want to upg to later InDesigns as I exchange work with others in CS3 form & they arent compatible.
I think I may be able to help you with this problem, which I was having with CS4 when I first upgraded to Lion, and others were having with CS3. This fix is courtesy of Aisolve on these discussion boards:
Remove the Adobe PDF PPDs from the following folders:
Be sure to go to your system Library, not your user Library.
Also, regarding my current problem, I spoke with an Apple tech person and found that the 10.7.2 upgrade apparently is the culprit, and is incompatible with wireless printing to my Lanier printer. I CAN print connected through USB. That's a work-around for now, but I'll need to contact Lanier about upgrading their driver for OS X 10.7.2.
Aisolve was helping me with this issue, too, and assures me that if I'm able to generate a postscript file (which I was), and able to generate a PDF by distlling it through Adobe Distiller (which I am), then I can safely assume that the problem lies with the hardware, in this case the printer driver. This lines up with what Apple told me.
Thank you very much. That was indeed the problem.
