Export to PDF function crash in InDesign 15.1
Today I have updated to InDesign 15.1 and when I try to export to PDF the application immediately crash.
This happen even I change the type of export (small dimension, print, etc.).
I'm using windows 10 pro ver. 1909 build 18363.836, and Indesign 15.1 x64.
The system start to work but the application crash at 16% of the export.
The problem seems connected with something on the file, because I try to export another project and it work perfectly.
The file was all "green" in the preliminary checks panel.
And I notice that the system crash also using other function, example scrolling the pages list or the links list.
There is something wrong in the new version 15.1 that stops the compiling. Unfortunately no errors appear, only application crash.
Coming back to version 15.0.3 have solved the problem and the file was perfectly exported in PDF.
The fix for this is now publicly available in the latest InDesign update, 15.1.1
Please update to the latest version to get the fix.

Not working for me too. Keeps crashing. Any chance of an update please Admin?
No the fix didn't work. InDesign still crashes when exporting to PDF Interactive format.
This happens on one document, but if I copy the fields to a new document it works well.
Why is this?
Im on 15.1.2 and its still crashing. What is the fix?
Exporting books with cross references between the documents is still not possible. Tried in 15.1.1 and also in 15.0.3 and 15.0.1. All cross references and hyperlinks are valid. Think back to InDesign 14 is the only possible solution.
Still problems making a pdf when the document is large.
This is most definitely not fixed despite the grinning reassurance from the admin. Get it fixed promptly and stop releasing updates with bugs. You had one job to do.
I have spent hours tonight trying to create a print ready PDF for a print deadline tomorrow. Zero bytes... and zero bytes. I’ve never had this problem until recently.
Failed to export PDF still in 15.1.1
I have 15.1.1 and it still crashes. Seems to be something to do with hyperlinks
appalling! had the same issues and now took advice to roll back so I can now produce the PDF for my client's document who needed it 2 days ago! Pay a lot for this program so I'd like to know when all this is fixed.
New version crashes every time I export to PDF. I've tried it with older files that previously exported without any problems. Reverted to 15.0.3 and no trouble exporting.
for some reason my creative cloud says I am up to date and yet I do not have the 15.1.1 version - I am having this same issue with the crash when exporting.
It is not fixed. It still crashes even after the update.
How do you update? I am not given that option.
Updated today (6/23) and Indesign 18.104.22.168 freezing upon trying to export.
me too: I'm experiencing a lot of trouble with 15.1 and the PDF export. InDesign crashes and the generated PDF is 0KB... This happens with different indesign files in different location/hard discs
I have Adobe InDesign 15.1. Since the upgrade I am not able to export to a pdf. When I export, it quits the InDesign application and the pdf that it exports will not open and it has 0KB. This is happening since I renewed the subscription.
Where can I find version 15.1.1? It's not showing up in the previous versions to install on creative cloud. Please link if possible.
I created idml file. Then export works fine for me:)
Test your software more before public release, it's expensive!
v15.1 introduces two bugs that crash the program in the middle of workflow (which for professionals usually has deadlines).
One is a PNG related crash - still not fixed. (Asking to use beta software, which introduced potential new bugs, is not a fix.)
Other is - it just crashes without any message or dialog, while opening a INDD file (worked in previous version just fine).
Going back to previous version - messaging client to extend deadline an hour or two.
