Changing default language causes InDesign to crash and language remains unchanged
InDesign v 16.4 & InDesign v 17.0 on macOS Catalina
InDesign keeps crashing when you’re trying to change the default language. Received a large file with French as default and we need to localize it for US market.
Paragraph Styles > [Basic Paragraph] > Advanced Character Formats > Language: French (Change to English: USA) > OK
Edit > Find/Change > Find Format > Advanced Character Formats > Language: French > Change Format > Advanced Character Formats > Language: English: USA > Change All
The language is suppose to change so that the symbols will be correct. For example all French « » is changed to "" for English USA.
The program keeps crashing.
