Hey Everyone, 

I work a lot with InDesign and that never happened before:

 

I made a file with quite complex elements from AI (copy & paste) everything worked out but suddenly ID did not export pdf for print anymore. First there was an error in background export but that stopped - I restarted InDesign, my laptop and then deinstalled it and installed it again a view times (even the older version). But the problem did not stop - there is still something wierd happening.

There is no error in the background export anymore but even the most simple file is just waiting to be exported. (I added a video) When I export interaktive pdf it works.

Does anybody know what to do? I read something about that eps files are a problem for ID especially when they are complex (I have tried png instead but it does not work anymore). What could be wrong even after reinstalling the programm?  Help, please.

Thank you for every kind of advise, 
Luisa

Hi @Luisa-Christin , have you tried trashing your InDesign Preferences and Caches? A reinstall wouldn’t necessarily create a new set of preferences.
