When I want to create a cross reference in a INDD (which I did on a daily basis without problems) the pop-up opens I search for the location frome where or to what it should link, click it. Then Indesign says save document (which it never asked before) then the little cirkle starts to turn and the message: a problem has occured with Adobe Indesign 2023 pops up, then Indesign crashes. Does anybody knows why. Has it something to do with an indesign update?
Did you try the IDML repair path?
Look into the file history if something apears which should not be there. Hold down comd/ctrl and go to Abotu InDesign …
I realy can't make out in all the data that apears if there is something that should not be there. Important is that there are no missing plug-ins
Sometimes, after the MAJOR update, preferences get corrupted - or your file been already corrupted in a way that the old version was able to "ignore" it - but the new version crashes.
Colleagues suggested that the file might be corrupted. If found a way to work around.
As mentioned by @Willi Adelberger - try IDMLing or trash your prefs:
