Working on a large book in InDesign. A paragraph has some sort of glitch or curruption preventing me from making any sort of change to that paragraph only. Crashes when I try to add index anchors, try to italicize, try to make superscript.

 

No problem visible in "story editor." Is there a way to view markup to see if something in there? Just one paragraph and its footnotes in a 30-page chapter! So frustrating! Help!

BTW, it was "Export" as IDML, not "Save As." Woke up thinking that this morning and it did work, thanks.

Try saving the file (or the chapter if you've used InDesign's Book feature) as IDML. File > Save As > InDesign CS4 or later [IDML]). Then reopen up the IDML file which may remove corruption.

"Save as" offers no file options other than as InDesign or InDesign template. Tried adding extension IDML to no avail.

 

and BTW, when I say "crashes" I mean freezes.
