    I have the newest version and it still crashed when I try to change the margins, three times in a row. I stopped trying to change the margins and now it is crashing at other odd times. Ugh. Frustrating! Trying to get the job completed tonight, doesn't look like it will happen. VERY FRUSTRATING.

    If you try to set the default value (with no document open) for the spread borders, ID crashes.

    Had no crash changing margins with application defaults ( no document open ) in InDesign CC 2018.1 on Windows 10 version 1803 German.

    See this reply in the Adobe InDesign Forum:

    Same here, I want to set 0mm for default margins instead of 12.7mm but it's impossible as the app crashes every time I click OK. Frustrating.

    Just happened to me, same steps & result while trying to change default document margins. Nice to see it's reported & under review!
