Hi @laurence roussel12011930, to troubleshoot this, add a line into your loop that logs the counter and the document name.

$.writeln('i = ' + i + '  document.name = ' + document.name);

 This will hopefully tell you if (a) it is crashing Indesign on a particular document, or (b) if it is crashing Indesign after a number of iterations. As soon as you find out that the crash happens always at a particular document you can investigate that document further by isolating it in a folder by itself.
