numbered lists

Anyone had this problem? Every time I try to create a Paragraph style for numbered list -- ID crashes. I've tried the usual way as a new PS, I've tried copying the Bullet List style and putting in Numbers in place of bullets -- even changing my Hanging Indent style to numbered. Crashes every time. Just disappears -- no ability to send a crash report, either.

It has to be something in the Word file itself, as after taking it into WordPerfect and saving it as a .doc file -- I could use numbering! (Do I hate Word?) Wish I'd thought of that earlier.

Thank you for your patience and efforts! Most appreciated.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Does it happen with all fonts?

I'm using Minion Pro at 12pt. The original Word file is in Times New Roman, and so full of overrides, plus all the text is Word's "Normal" even the bolds, the 20pt titles, the lot. It's a dreadful file. Would that any something to do with the numbered list issue?

 

And thank you!

Did you try to trash preferences? Quit InDesign and relaunch it while holding down simultaneously the Shift, Ctrl, Alt and Cmd keys (Mac), Shift, Ctrl, and Alt keys (Windows) until you see a warning message asking for confirmation.

I just did as you said -- trashing preferences. I managed to create the Numbered List style, but when I tried to apply it text, it crashed. Very strange!

You got the warning message? Does InDesign crash on different files or only one? Did you try to export it as idml?

It trashes consistently on any of the files in this particular "book" I'm working on. Just tried on another file. It must be this file. Something in the Word file. I'll try bringing up the Word file in WordPerfect, saving it as Word, then importing it. That might give me an answer.
