    InDesign 5.5 hangs +corrupt pages

    Gareth Neil



      For a reason I cant fathom my multi-page documents hang.

      I'm working on 68 page magazine documents and every few weeks my files crash.

      Its real heart in the mouth stuff.


      The only visual change in the document, once it has corrupted, is a thick black line down the middle, along the bottom and up the RHS of the spreads

      (see attached screen grab)

      To clarify: the ID file crashes & corrupts, I can reopen it again briefly then I get the spinning pizza and I have to force quit.

      The ID files I am working on are within a Dropbox folder.


      Heres a link to the crash log



      So far 'Exporting to .idml' (http://forums.adobe.com/thread/526991)

      appears to fix the file (fingers crossed) but I was wondering if the problem was solvable before it gets to the point of having to export.


      Do you need any further info from me?


      Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

      Anyone else have this problem.


      Many thanks
