me too! I'm using Indesign 2021/2022 on OS Big sur and it is no possible to make the package on files server resident: it crashes the whole MAC . ( On Windows it works 100% )

I am also having that problem, Indesign has been trying to package a large file for 8 hours now and is still showing Creating IDML. If I push cancel will the rest of the package contents be complete and function properly?
Mine does the same. I have to force-quit. I have to double-check if the packaged files work, as well as the IDML.
Needlesstosay, I have links missing in the file, but that shouldn't be an issue, as the computers at my workplace don't get this issue, and they're 2013 iMacs.
Using M1 Apple Macbook Air, on Monterey.
having same issue, Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7, January 2021
I'm also having this problem as of 12/15/20
It's Dec 14, Any news from the Indesign Turtle den???
I am crippled but, I am sure we are all paying our subscriptions on time.
Same issue, October 29th, 2020. Why hasn't this been addressed yet?
InDesign freezes upon packaging files, I have to keep restarting. I see this problem goes back to May 2019, it's Oct 1st 2020 - Any advice?
I'm having this same issue on Mac Mojave, InDesign 2020, any update?

im having the same issue in August 2020
End of June, still having same issue
I hope this gets fixed soon. The IDML/packaging hangup is costing me a lot of time. There should be an option to NOT create the IDML if you don't need it as well.
I am also having this issue. The file won't export to IDML, package the IDML or even downsave. Huge issue as my client cannot open the INDD file we are currently working on. Running Mojave 10.14.6.

Having this problem, too. The first report of it I see appears to be on 5/1/19 but wasn't responded to until 10/4/19. Now it is February 2020, and still no fix? This is a major impediment to my business. I would have expected a quicker response on this basic InD function that so many people use.
I am having this issue as well. I have tried exporting as an idml also -and it hangs. I have Mac Mojave 10.14.6 MacBook Pro
I'm having this issue now on Mojave mac OS 10.14.5, 2017 iMac Retina 5K 27-inch
I have the same issue on Windows 10.
