.162 crashes placing PDF files

Recommended Posts

Auto-upgraded to the latest .162-version. Documents with placed PDF are crashing now constantly. New documents are also crashing most times when placing any random PDF (X-1 and X-3 from Indesign or Illustrator, Word-exported PDF, ...). I also tried to reset the preferences, but no success. Under the previous version it worked for me and tehre where no crashes. Is threre something specific to (placed) PDFs in this version or anything I can do as workaround? I attached a crash-log.

PS: using Designer to place PDFs just works.

Hi Chris,
I try to attach some very simple files when I arrive at the home office later on.

Sorry, to be specific:
AP .162 crashes every time if I try to move and/or try to duplicate a placed PDF with the alt-key. If I open an older document that contains such duplicated (linked) PDFs then it crashes, too. If I do the same with a JPG image it doesn't crash. So I think there is a problem with placing, embedding/linking PDFs within this version of AP. For the crash test I simply used a X3-PDF I made from within AP and placed it again. On the duplicate+move with the alt-key it rumbles away ...

PS: Strange, within the placed PDF the preview of the file in AP sometimes disapears. See the AP crash-document with the placed file - no preview on my side.

PPS: The preview-mode (^w) should be available in AD, too - it is really, really helpfull!

PPPS: Tried in on different iMacs with macos 10.13.6 and the lates AP.
