I think my indesign file has a bug, I'm attempting to either save, save as, package  and instead of the correct dialogue box opening - the print booklet diagloue is opening...
This is also the same for the export as function.

Try resetting your preferences:
The easiest way to reset everything is to delete the InDesign preferences: as soon as InDesign starts to boot hold down Shift, Alt, Ctrl (and Apple/Cmd if working on a Macintosh). A dialog will appear asking to delete the InDesign Preferences, select 'Yes' on this dialog.

Reinstalling rarely fixes everything - you can do a complete reinstall using the

Try this script - you won't have to close InDesign

https://creativepro.com/files/kahrel/indesign/batch_convert.html

 

You can install a script easy enough

https://help.redokun.com/article/38-install-an-indesign-script

 

 

With this script it will give you an option to package/save etc. 

Hope it helps.

You can install the script by going through your folders and placing the file in the correct folder.

 

You can then run the script via the Quick Apply

Which is the Lightening bolt located on the top right of the screen

Or press CMD + Enter (on Mac) it might be CTRL Enter on PC.

Ensure that the Scripts are applied

For example

I have my own set of folders

User:0Mostused:relinkimages.jsx

(yours might be different)

 

So you search in the Quick Apply by inserting a : between the folder names

User:YOURFOLDER:YOURSCRIPTNAME.jsx

 

And you should be able to get the script started

When I click "include scripts" on the quick apply dialogue - the dialogue disappears. When I reopen quick apply "include scripts" is not included, same thing happens again.

If all else is failing, a force quit of InDesign will trigger the auto-recovery function on re-open and there's at least a 50% chance your open file will be recovered with not more than a few minutes of lost work (it usually works, but I won't tell you it's 100%)
