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.
Further info and instructions here if needed:
Reinstalling rarely fixes everything - you can do a complete reinstall using the

Thanks - but I don't want to reboot indesign as I will have lost work - I need to save my current file?
Try this script - you won't have to close InDesign
You can install a script easy enough
With this script it will give you an option to package/save etc.
Hope it helps.
Thanks - however I can't even install the script - the menu items seem to be scrambled.. when I click window > utilities >scripts the script dialogue does not open, tool hints opens for some reason. Nothing is working as it should it seems....
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
I have my own set of folders
(yours might be different)
So you search in the Quick Apply by inserting a : between the folder names
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.
I'm afraid you'll be have to go with Peters suggestion and hope you don't loose too much.

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%)
