Suitcase Fusion 3 installed?
When you have third party plugins and crashes, the first suspects are generally the plugins. Do you also use a font manager?
Please see Guide to Interpreting InDesign Crash Reports | InDesignSecrets for directions on finding the crash log you need and how to interpret it (or you can post the log on Pastebin.com and put a link to it here, and John will eventually try to read it for you).
Bob - Suitcase Fusion isn't installed.
Peter - I agree about the third party plugins, however it's not something we can't do with out (makes the whole editorial process go!). And we have an older than the hills Adobe Font Manager 4.1.
I'll take a look at the guide you refer to and see if that can help me out.
Thanks again for your responses and I'll try and follow up with what I find.
And we have an older than the hills Adobe Font Manager 4.1.
Do you mean you are attempting to run Adobe Type Manager Deluxe 4.1 on Windows XP? My memory is it is NOT compatible with XP and does REALLY BAD things to your system. That could be the problem.
And I understand that the plugin is necessary for the workflow, but to diagnose the problem you should try disabling it and test to see if you can now save without crashing. If the plugin is the probelm, there's nothing anyone here, or at Adobe, can do to fix it. For that you need to contact the plugin vendor (which may be a good idea, anyway).
Yes we are running Adobe Type Manager Deluxe 4.1 on Windows XP. Installs just fine on XP and works just fine. Won't install on Windows 7...period.
In regards to the Plugin...I'm starting to come to the same conclusion. I've got InDesign in other parts of the building and it does not crash this frequently.
Did some googling, and it seems my memory is only partly correct. ATM 4.0 is incompatible, but 4.1 can be installed and used as a font manager (it is not required for installing T1 fonts), but uninstalling can damage the registry and render T1 fonts unusable ( there is a patch to fix this).
