Does this happen with every document or some document that you created with the plugin? Trash InDesign preferences, it might help

Then probably its your code that corrupted the document. Export the document to IDML and it should be fine. Look at your code on what you add to the document and how you handle missing plugin scenario

Well that is what I said that you did something in the code that is causing these crashes. Now it's only you who can debug and identify what is causing your crash. If I were in your position, I would start by commenting out the chunks I added to the sample plugin and thus by trials identify the code that's causing the issues.

What plugin in are you talking about?

What happens if you export the file as IDML and use that now? 

Maybe you should export to IDML before removing the plugin.

Thank You @Willi Adelberger, InDesign not crashing after exporting to IDML but my requirement is that I want to copy the data from the document(INDD file) without exporting INDD to IDML, and without crashing the InDesign.

You have to contact the plugin developer as the underlaying problem is not InDesign but the plugin.

Hi @Ravi25527747efwu,

As we have been trying to telling you all along. This is a crash caused by that plugin and going by what you said so far, it seems you are the developer of this plugin, so you need to debug that. We can't guess and tell you what needs to be done to resolve your issue, as we don't know what is written in your code and can't debug it. So this discussion is not going to lead anywhere. The only help we can offer is when you are able to debug your code and figure out whats the problem and need suggestions on how to handle that situation.

From HidTxt.fr:

// Custom story thread (ITextStoryThread) and owned item (IOwnedItem) implementations are 
// not supported by missing plug-in workflows. If a document with hidden text is passed to a 
// user that does not have the HiddenText plug-in the application may become unstable and 
// document corruption may happen. Therefore we mark this plug-in's data as critical so the
// user will receive a string warning not to open documents with hidden text data when the
// plug-in is missing.

When you remove your critical plug-in required by a document, that should cause the "missing plug-in" dialogs rather than crash the application. Have you eventually modified the example project by removing these other objects, or the CriticalTags resources ?
