What version of InDesign? Is the latest patch for that version installed?
Crashes are harder to diagnose on Windows because it doesn't generate the really helpful crash reports you get on Macs. Is this happening with text objects, or graphic objects, or both?
Have you already tried trashing your preferences? see Replace Your Preferences
yes i think it's the latest but anyway i tried also with the previous cs5 AND now with the cs5.5 and the problem it's the same, i just uninstalled and reinstalled the complete cs this friday, with updates, i also used the adobe cleaner in the process, but it gave me the same result... yes it happens with every kind of objects, images, shapes, text boxes but not with texts.. i will try with replacing my preferences but i thought that uninstalling everything would have removed them in any case... oh and photoshop started giving that problem again too.. thank you anyway
Unless you specifically tell the uninstaller to remove them, it will leave your preferences intact. Not sure about the cleaner tool.
Do you run a font manager? How about anti-virus or spyware protection?
yes yes i remember flagging the option, i'm sure of it, anyway i'm not using any font manager program and for protection i use antivir and spybot, can they create some kind of conflict?
Some some antivirus and spyware scanners can get pretty aggressive about checking everything and will occasionally cause problems. I haven't seen anything specific about either Spybot or Avira, though. You can try runiing the system configuration utility (type system configuration int the search field in the start menu and it will be listed, or msconfig in the Run dialog) and turn them off for a time to test, though.
Do you get any error messages? Anything at all in Event Viewer?
here it is the error message!
Problem Event Name: BEX
Application Name: InDesign.exe
Application Version: 188.8.131.52
Application Timestamp: 4d78c745
Fault Module Name: StackHash_0a9e
actually i don't know what this bex is...
Nor do I, but I do see that you need to update to 7.5.2 and that might just take care of it.
are you sure? i told you it's not a version problem, also the older one had the same problems.
there are some major bug fixes in 7.5.2. Thay may not solve your particular problem, though, as this sounds a lot like a conflict with something else running in the background.
You didn't answer my question about a font manager, and do you have any third party plugins?
no i don't use font managers they made me format my computer last time i used one of them... but i did find another discussion in this forum talking about this BEX thing: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3293620 it seems to be familiar but i don't know how to recognise a corrupted font... can it derive from a bad font website? anyway i don't have plugins either, i just wipe out everything and started over..
i don't know how to recognise a corrupted font... can it derive from a bad font website?
absolutely. Try removing any fonts that you don't need, and any that you might be suspicious of in general.
I am not using inDesign that much - infact I have not used the last 6 years (used freehand and then illustrator for some basic brochure layout)
I have the same issue as you
A copy and paste triggers a crash on a regular basis
Please start a new thread, giving as much detail as you can about any error messages, your version of InDesign, and your operating system.
