InCopy crashes when exporting stories

I am using InCopy CS6 and I have tried unsuccessfully to export from Story view to PDF. I select all of the appropriate options in the PDF Export dialog box. However, when I click the Export button, I get this error message:
Adobe InCopy CS6 has stopped working
A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
I am then forced to close the program. And unfortunately, I am not notified of any available solution.
I am on a Windows 7 PC and I have Adobe Acrobat X Pro. The assignment has 59 stories, and I am trying to export only 4 of these stories. And, one of my coworkers is having the same issue with other assignments.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and been able to fix it?

Hi Sushmar
My editor edits with Incopy 6, everything goes well until she wants to export a pdf, Incopy 6 then crashes. Incopy 5.5 does not have this problem. Please point me in the right direction, as we have extremely tight deadlines and no other way of working.

  • InDesign Crashing When Exporting Stories for InCopy

    When trying to export a single story, or just 3 or 4 text frames, my system is hanging up. Is there a problem with InDesign or is it a system problem? I have 2gb of memory on my system and enough room on my hard drive. However, I am saving this file and working directly on a external hard drive that is connected to the Internet so that my client and I have access to this server. We would like to work in Layout Mode and thought that since all of the files and links were on this drive, there would not be a problem.
    I am not sure why InDesign is hanging up so badly. I do not have a problem with InDesign otherwise.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did not try to save this file afterwards to the external hard drive, but created and worked consistently off this drive with all of the files.
    Thank you so much for all of your help.
    All the best,

    Hi Bob:
    The Drive is connected directly to the DSL modem and not to my computer. We
    are using the Western Digital Worldbook drive and the software Mionet. The
    software creates a virtual Drive on your computer which you can access like
    any other Drive. It is actually mapped like your C, D Drives and when you
    view My Computer, you see this drive listed and are connected.
    If you think that this type of server will not work then I will try your
    method. However, I still do not understand why this is bombing out. Does the
    InDesign files need to be on local drive only? I have no problem opening or
    saving the InDesign files to this drive, it appears as a local drive on my
    system. I tried a test file using this method and it seemed to work, but I
    cannot export any stories from this document.
    One thought came to mind, and I am not sure if this has any bearing on my
    problem, but this document is created from a copy of prior issue. We
    generally use the prior month's issue, delete all of the content and start
    the next issue. All that remains from the prior issue is the masthead and
    some repeating items. So in this document, I opened last month's issue,
    (there were no InCopy stories, they had been previously unlinked) deleted
    all of the text, and then saved it in a new folder. Once I finished the
    layout, I packaged the file so all of the links would collected in a new
    project folder. Then I opened that document from the packaged folder, and
    tried to make the InCopy stories. Could that be part of my problem too?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks so much,

  • InDesign Crashes when exporting to InCopy

    I support several hundred InDesign/ InCopy users. We have been using this workflow for several years.
    Approximately a month ago, we migrated to CS5 (7.0.3). I began to immediately get support calls that InDesign and InCopy were crashing. A few of the calls were that InCopy was crashing when pasting text from MS Office, but he overwhelming majority of the calls are for InDesign crashing when exporting stories to InCopy. If exported one at a time, the stories export fine. When exporting all stories or an entire text layer of stories, it will crash nearly without fail.
    Our environment consists of Mac Pro 2x2.66Ghz and 2.8Ghz Intel Core Duo 2 iMacs running 10.5.8. with CS5 7.0.3. This is happening on multiple machines. A few of them have been gone over to verify base OS integrity, permissions repaired, DiskWarrior run etc… to make sure we did not have individual machine issues.
    I need resolution for both issues, but the crashing while exporting is so prevalent that my graphic designers are starting to really get aggravated.
    I searched the forum for "InCopy", for "export" and for "crash." None of those terms returned a single hit. I can't imagine those terms are not in this forum, so I am working on the assumption that searching must be broken at the moment.
    Thanks in advance for any guidance,

    Try posting on the InCopy forum. There was another similar report there...
    Did you fill out a bug report?

  • Incopy CS6 crashes when exporting to pdf

    Incopy 6 crashes when exporting to pdf. Message – unknown error

  • Please Help! InCopy crashes when I try to export...

    Please help me!
    InCopy crashes when I try to export to PDF. The file I'm working in was originally an InDesign CS3 file that was converted to InDesign CS4 when we upgraded our software. We've run into some BIG PROBLEMS with CS4, and so we've exported our CS4 InDesign files as CS3 .INX files so we can work on them in InDesign CS3.
    I've isolated that the problem is only when I try to export pages that have a large ad that goes through the gutter of the newspaper spread. All other pages PDF fine from InCopy CS3.
    I opened an old CS3 file (that was never converted to CS4), and double checked that I can still export the whole file to PDF including the pages that have ads going through the gutter.
    Is this a bug with CS4 files? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix the problem? NOTE: I already tried splitting the box for the ad into 2 separate boxes (one on each page), but InCopy still crashes when I try to export either one of the pages that has content through the gutter.
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    I've moved your question to the Adobe ExportPDF forum for that service.

  • Is ILife 11 the current version today? Will its purchase upgrade my Iphoto 8.2.1 to Iphoto 11? I have a Macbook, Maverick and Iphoto is crashing when exporting photos.  I understand ILife is the way to fix it.

    Is ILife 11 the current version today? (May  2014).  ILife 11 on Amazon appears to be 3+ yrs old?
    When searching for ILife 11 on the Apple Store, I am directed to a separate purchase of Iphoto version 9.
    Somewhat confusing, Apple is always so clear with these things. 
    The goal is to upgrade my Iphoto 8.2.1 to Iphoto 11.
    I have a Macbook Pro, Maverick 10.9.2 and Iphoto is crashing when exporting photos. 
    I understand ILife is the way to fix it.

    The current version of iPhoto is iPhoto 9.5.1., and it is the latest version of iPhoto '11.
    If you are running Mavericks 10.9.2, you can buy iPhoto 9.5.1 from the AppStore - it is the currently sold version.
    The iLife bundle is called iLife '11, and the iPhot version in iLife '11 is iPhoto 9.x.x. - that is confusing allright
    I have a Macbook Pro, Maverick 10.9.2 and Iphoto is crashing when exporting photos.
    While it is certainly useful to upgrade to the current iPhoto version to be fully compatible with MacOs X 10.9.2, there may be a differnet reason for the crashes. Is there an error message with the crashes? When did these start? Did you import new photos or videos? Install other software?

  • Media Encoder crashes when exporting from Premiere Pro

    Media Encoder crashes when exporting from Premiere Pro. I am queueing multiple files for export and Media Encoder will crash. The computer system has 32GB of RAM and the videos export fine in Premiere, but that requires exporting each one individually. Each video file is being down converted and some can be quite long (upwards of 3-5 hours). Nothing else is running on the computer that would take up memory.
    Any idea why Media Encoder will crash?

    Try turning off GPU acceleration.

  • My new iMac with FCPX crashes when rendering complex templates and crashes when exporting with Motion 5

    My new iMac with FCPX crashes when rendering complex templates and crashes when exporting with Motion 5

    I also happens when I try to export movies with Motion 5.
    Does anyone have the same problem with my new iMac?

    Problems such as yours are sometimes caused by files that should belong to you but are locked or have wrong permissions. This procedure will check for such files. It makes no changes and therefore will not, in itself, solve your problem.
    First, empty the Trash.
    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below to select it, then drag or copy it — do not type — into the Terminal window:
    find . $TMPDIR.. \( -flags +sappnd,schg,uappnd,uchg -o ! -user $UID -o ! -perm -600 -o -acl \) 2> /dev/null | wc -l
    Press return. The command may take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear.
    The output of this command, on a line directly below what you entered, will be a number such as "35." Please post it in a reply.

  • Flash CS5.5 crashes when exporting movieclip for Actionscript

    My Flash CS5.5 crashes when exporting movieclip for Actionscript (select movieclips -> modify -> convert to symbol -> check export for actionscript). I think this only happens when Photoshop CS5 is open.
    Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm using Win7 64-bit. The only open programs are Flash, Photoshop, and Firefox.

    Oddly enough, I opened up Flash again, today, just to see if it was still the same, and it had worked. Everything seemed normal, I opened a new document and started working. Then, out of nowhere it stopped responding again. So I waited for it to respond, it didn't. I closed it from the task manager, and now it's back to the original problem of crashing when I try to create a new document or open an old ontrie
    Update: I tried the cleaner, as you'd suggested. Followed all the steps, but to no avail. Think it may have something to do with my machine, and less with the software?

  • IMovie 11 crashes when exporting to Quicktime

    iMovie 11 crashes when exporting to Quicktime.  Some people have posted that this problem disappeared when they upgraded from Lion to Mountain Lion.  However, I am running Mt.Lion and it still happens.  If there is no fix for this bug, does anyone know a workaround that will produce the same ultimate result..namely, a Quicktime movie that is not too large to attach to emails.  Apple, please fix this.  Thank you.

    Update after two Apple iApps specialists spent 1.5 hours on the phone with me:  There are 3 "poison pills" (that we know of) that will cause the crash if any of the three is part of the movie:  Picture-in-picture, side-by-side, or a circle open/close transition. Otherwise, no crash.  The specialist made a movie on his own computer, containing the poison pills, but he exported to Quicktime without a crash.  There is at least one report in the threads of a problem like mine.  Thus, some Gremlin is causing this, in some computers.  The iApps specialist was curioius to know whether a lot of people have this problem, or only a few.  (If a lot, then it is worth submitting to the engineers to fix.)  He said if you have this problem, call Apple.  I asked if such people should post a "Me too!" on this thread.  He said no, better to call Apple and report it.  So that's the story.  I can live without those poison pills in my export-to-quicktime movies. I am just a consumer, not a pro, and I can live with it.  But it would be nice if Apple could fix this.

  • CS2 InDesign crash when exporting

    I've got a copy of CS2 InDesign at work that crashes when exporting a certain file to PDF.
    The files have limited information on each page except for placed PDF & JPG images. The images themselves seldom get above 300kb each, but there are lots - some times 5 per page in an 80 page document. It's a document to be printed so the images are as small as they can be.
    When exporting the document, ID crashes without warning - it just vanishes, no dialog box saying 'This application unexpectedly quit' or anything.
    Is this common? I have plenty of memory on the Mac, and no other applications or windows are open at the same time.
    Any suggestions as to why this happens?
    All text in the PDF images are outlined in Illustrator so presumably it's not a type recognition issue.
    Any suggestions welcome.

    Hi Bob,
    System spec is PowerPC G5, version 10.4.11. I'll have to ask our Mac expert
    if CS2 is fully patched.
    Cheers for your response.

  • Final Cut Express FCE Crashes when exporting to Quicktime or Quicktime conv

    Final Cut Express FCE Crashes when exporting to Quicktime or Quicktime conversion!
    This started completely out of the blue last night. The export gets about 30-50% done and FCE disappears from the screen and the "FCE quit unexpectedly" message pops up. This has never happened before and I was doing exports of this very project all week. All other projects won't expect, the current project won't export when brought into a new file, I tried reinstalling FCE, and I deleted the pref files spoken about in the forum.
    Any Ideas!!!????

    Try repairing permissions and re-boot.

    Thanks so much ... just tried it and it worked perfectly. I just used a small external drive to transfer them, and ticked the option to 'copy and import photos to new location', so not only the catalogue, but also the photos themselves are on my iMac. Very simple. Thanks.
