Try exporting to .idml and see if that does it. Is there a particular reason you need to unembed? You don't have to actually use the profile that's emedded, as far as I know, nor does Live Preflight need to be on.
I found the section for the embedded preflight in the INX file exported form the document. (For some reason, I cannot read IDML in Notepad? - what is the best way to edit these?). This then opened in InDesign with the embedded preflight removed.
I have a lot (250,000) InDesign templates, each containing an embedded preflight which now needs changing. I was thinking of a scripted solution to unembedding the preflight from each document.
However, I can change the users' settings to use a Working Profile rather than the embedded one. I just want to be thorough and update the templates.
If the files are old enough to export to .inx, so much the better. .idml is really a zip archive that can be unzipped, tinkered with, and rezipped if you cahnge the extension.
Peter, I came across this and am going to give it a try.
My reason for unembedding is that I am receiving a message about the embedded profile conflicting with the working profile, right before the document crashes all the time. I also happen to know that the embedded profile is not needed in this case, because I am the one that accidentally clicked on the embed button.
Thanks, it's not the most intuitive place to put it, but the image of where to find it, helped tremendously.

Just out of curiosity: Where would have you put it?
