Indesign 2023 crashing for random actions

I have text box that has two columns and it crashes all the time I want to do stuff. I style table with table style, crash. Autoflow text to next pages, crash. 

I save it to IDML. Indesign 2022 say it cannot open .... indd while it is opening IDML and recomends me to save as IDML. It cannot create IDML, and cant handle longer texts. I basically have no way out. 

I choose to convert it with Indesign 2022. Who knows what losses occured, but still same crashes. 
Pretty much unusable on book design.

I have heard that if using columns in text frames it will be slow. I already split the book into 20 page pieces. If it cannot handle tables in this configuration then there should be warning. "Pleaso do not use this program this and this way."

I still design documents with two columns per text frame and it is always crashing and some edits. No matter the indesign version or windows version and none of the troubleshooting that Mike recommended do not help. 

I feel that it has still something to do with rearranging stuff  on pages and columns and Indesign cannot handle that.
Also I import text from Word with tables and footnotes and so on. Maybe some odd things transfer from Word.

I have 30 pages this time and if I want to change style of single footnot hyperlink underline, then it everything crashes. Multiple character and paragraph styles also cause the crash. I just have to tell the client that some text styles have to be with some random default style.

I repeat, it is multiple computers different operating systems and different Indesigns and nothing changes. Even the Word files have different origins. It is not me. I doubt it has to do something with my location and language settings.
