Bug details

InDesign crashes when editing text

21.5" iMac with 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6
12 GB RAM
360+ GB of hard disk space

When attempting to copy text from a word document into 28 Mb file in InDesign, InDesign freezes... endless spinning color wheel. Problem is persistent - every time I try to copy a paragraph of text. It even occurred when I tried typing the paragraph of text.

Tried updating InDesign CC
Tried uninstalling and reinstalling
Tried using Story Editor to edit text box.

Apple crash report attached.
