    Actually it doesn't look like it is the 3rd party apps causing the problem.

    Go to Preferences > Clipboard Handling and deselect 'Copy PDF to Clipboard' and this seems to stop the crashes and allow you to continue using the 3rd party apps.

    Yes I am using Keyboard Maestro.

    Seems to have been reported here 2 years ago as well - https://forum.keyboardmaestro.com/t/km-causes-adobe-indesign-to-crash-when-copying/5183/4

    Note - it doesn't crash for me if I select auto-expand height.
