Indesign CS5.5 / CS6 crash under Mountain Lion DP4

Hi all

I've a "developer mac" at my office, where we're testing Mountain Lion. On this computer we also have two Adobe installations (CS5.5 and CS6). Until the last OS update, all Adobe applications seem to run without any problem worthy of note.

After upgrading to Mountain Lion DP4, both versions of Indesign have started to have a very annoying problem.

Package creation and deletion of a page crash the program.

It seems the crash is caused by the warning dialog that Indesign would be opened before any of the operations described above (the classic window with the warning sign).

This is the crash log (only the interesting part):

Process:         Adobe InDesign CS6 [1856]

The crashed thread is the same in both cases; when trying to export to package or when trying to delete a page from layout (blank or full, no matter). Anyone has already encountered the same problem? Any idea about it?

Thank you.

M.

Amen. Having exactly the same issue. Short term fix for me is to delete everything on the page before deleting it.

Updating links is crashing ID as well.

Mmmm sometimes empty the pages is not enough. If you want to be sure I've found a temporary workaround...

1 - Deleting pages: select menu Layout -> Pages -> Delete Pages

     enter the page you want to delete and press Delete using ALT+click.

     This works also with the small trashcan icon on layout pane. Press it with ALT+click. No dialog box appears, no crash.

2 - Creating Package: deselect Include Font and confirm. No dialog box appears, no crash.

Maybe if you use ALT+click when updating links you'll avoid the crash. I'll try...

Thanks for response MortenOSX, but I don't understand your suggestion. Can you elaborate?

Also, does ID6 in DP4 crash for you when you export to PDF?

I rolled back to DP3 where everything works fine but I see there's another Developer update today. I might try that to see if it works, but later.

Yes i'm running Suitcase Fusion (latest version with CS6 plugins). This is the only external plugin I installed.

But I've already tried to use another font manager. It was the first test I made, once discovered this problem... I've tried FontXplorer but the bug remains. Tried Fontcase, but nothing change...

You do realize of course this could easily be an Apple bug.

Try the Apple Developer forums.

I think Apple has deprecated some OS functions that ID still want to use.

IMHO many of similar problems will disappear definitively when InDesign will be rewritten completely in Cocoa...

It seems that InDesign is the only application that has not implemented the changes made on Photoshop and Illustrator, like a more modern UI and 64bit code...

However I'll try to ask this in the ADC forum.

I am having the same issues with ML DP4 and Indesign CS6.

ANYTIME a warning dialog pops up, it crashes my indesign. I wonder if this bug actually has to do with the ML's dialog class, or warning dialog class to be more specific.

Since installing Mountain Lion yesterday, my CS6 Illustrator and Photoshop are working fine - HOWEVER, my Indesign is not. It is crashing at the opening stage when the Indesign graphic appears. Causing me major problems with work today. Does anyone else have the problem, or does anyone know of a fix?? Thanks

I think that this might be the same issue as reported in this KB doc:

Please take a look at the published article and see if the steps and the files work for you.

Having the same problem. Installed Mountain Lion and now InDesign CS6 won't open – it crashes right after the opening splash graphic appears. I have completely uninstalled InDesign and re-installed, but that didn't help. InDesign CS4 works fine but, of course, I can't open more recent docs with that.

(I don't think the suggestion above, from Vikrant Rai, addresses this problem. I tried to run the script provided there but it wouldn't run saying "This is not required in Mac OS 10.8.)

So I too am stuck with an unusable InDesign CS6... any suggestions?

Did anyone get the crashing issue sorted out? I'm having the issue still on MacOSX10.8 and CS6. It seems I have uninstalled and reinstalled InDesign more times than should be necessary. There doesn't seem to be a solid reason why it's not working. One day it works fine, the next it doesn't.

I did not because of post 22 saying it didn't address the problem. It seems to be for 10.7.4 and I'm running 10.8.
