I have a four chapter book (about 80 pages) and every time I try to sync styles InDesign crashes. It worked fine yesterday, but today I made some changes and now every time I click the sync button in the book menu (Synchronize styles and swatches with the Style Source); instant crash. I've tried with all the chapters open and saved, only the style source open, restarted, deleted and re-added the chapters, etc. Thoughts?

Hi Laura,

export all InDesign documents used in the book file to IDML.

Open the IDML files and save as InDesign documents with a new name.

Do a new book file with the saved documents and try to synch again.

Regards,
Uwe

Hi,

 

 

 

I'm having the exact same problem, and I don't want to change it to an IDML file.

 

This ultimately needs to be an EPUB file and I don't want to he has a bunch of wacky file extensions when I have to verify this through so many different programs.

 

UPDATE: I transfered everything to IDML file, and it will export to reflowable epub. 

The problem is that IDML files can only be saved one time. If i resave, it makes a new file. This is a 450 page project. I need to save and check hundreds of times. This solution is will not work. 

 

Im sure you are thinking "Create the entire file, THEN do the IDML conversion on your Very LAST save."

 

NO- I cant do this huge project that will take months on the off chance that that MAY possibly work. This file neeeds to be parsed by half a dozen diferent epub hosting sites with different file standards.  

 

This solution is untenable. Does anyone have any better solutions?

 

Thanks for your time.

No, I have no better solution.

Other than putting all pages into one big InDesign document.

 

I still have no idea what's the real cause of the synching bug that leads to crashes.
