crashing when I add text wrap

I have a mostly text document, which needs a few images interspersed through the text. I have set the text wrap to "detect edges".

Every time I

(a) move the text-wrapped image into the text

or

(b) place the image in the text and THEN text wrap it

the document produces a spinning wheel of death as soon as it has to do text-wrapping. Sits there thinking for two minutes, and then crashes.

HELP!

Is this happening with just one document? Or all documents?

If it is just this one layout with the issue, it could be a corrupted document. Save the document as a IDML and then reopen in InDesign and see if the issue goes away.

Would like to know the solution also.  I'm running Indesign 16.0 x64 and anytime I click on the text wrap tool the program crashes.  I happens in any doc, new or existing, on a network drive or the computer's harddrive.  Only began happening when I did the most recent update.

This happens to me as well. I aplce an image in a text area, click the text wrap tool and the app crashes. Happens in new documents as well as in existing ones, both on network and on the local harddrive. However, I can create a frame, textwrap around it and the place the image in the frame.
