Adding text to "chained" anchored textframes causing complete crash when text is added to one of the first three frames
Indesign 2020, Version 15.0.1, iMac with Mac OS 10.15.1:
We have hundreds of documents created in Indesign 2019 with "chained" anchored textframes, sometimes 4, sometimes 5 frames in a row. Frames are set to automatical height adjust. When text is added to one of the first three frames causing the frame to become higher than before Indesign chrashes completely without warning. Adding text to frame 4 or 5 does NOT create a crash! Same files work perfectly under Indesign 2019. Problem occured with first version of Indesign 2020, and remains after recent update.
Would love to attach an Indesign testfile, but the contact form does not allow ".indd"-files...? I attached a video instead. First I add text to the fourth frame, and everything is fine. Then I add text to the second frame, and when I reach the end of the line (which should cause a linebreak and height-addition to the frame) Indesign crashes completely, without warning, without freezing before, and I am force-returned to the desktop.
The fix for this issue is now available in the latest InDesign version 15.1.
Please update to this version to get the fix.

Crash-report submitted a few minutes ago. E-Mail with testfile will be send shortly.
Thanks for your feedback. I will send everything as requested. A short info in advance: The issue is NOT related to a specific document, ALL documents which contain those "chained" anchored frames react the same. Old ones as well as new created ones. We have thousands of files which all have the same issue - therefor at the moment we stay with Indesign 2019.
