I solved it. I made a new document and moved all elements over. That seemes to have solved the problem. Thank you for your advice. If I have similar problems in the future I will try your method.

8GB is below the recommended 16GB. It's also the cheapest possible upgrade.

I see. I definitely would like to upgrade at some point.

Now I have to create a pdf to have my project reviewed. Everything worked as normal on Friday. All of a sudden it crashes. I didn't make any changes to the document except correcting one word in the text...

Is it only that one document? If so, try to export half. Then do the other half.

Keep doing that until you find the page with some kind of corruption.
