    Still broken in 15.03. There seem to be several Applescript commands that fails on Catalina, including place, relink and update. Also getting the item link fails:
    get item link of graphic 1 of thisBox
    --> "nothing" on Catalina
    --> returns the item link on Mojave

    One workaround for placement seems to be to address the file "as alias" or as «class furl». See Shane Stanleys solution here:
    https://forum.latenightsw.com/t/catalina-indesign-place-error-missing-required-parameter-file-name-for-method-place/2375/3

    Another option is to use javascript to place them, such as:

    tell application "Adobe InDesign 2020"
    do script "app.place(Array(" & thefiles & "));" language javascript

    where thefiles is a comma separated list of POSIX file references

    The below sequence seems to be a sure way of crashing Adobe InDesign and end up with a corrupt document:

    1) Create new A4 document
    2) Draw a text-box on page 1 and fill it with Placeholder text
    3) Make a new paragraph style and assign that style to the text
    4) Go to Page -> Create Alternate Layout
    5) Select Page Size A3, choose "Scale" and check "Copy Text Styles to New Style Group"
    6) In the Pages panel: Delete the alternate page you just created*
    7) Repeat step 5; creating the alternate layout again with the same settings
    8) Save the document somewhere as "my corrupt document.indd"
    9) Go to the alternate page and select the textbox. Boom! Beachball of death.

    If you try to open that document again InDesign will crash if you touch the textbox on the alternate page

    The above sequence does *not* crash InDesign 2019

    * it does not seem to be a difference between delete the page only or delete the entire Alternate Layout
    * saving is just to show that the document is corrupt. The error will show up either it is saved or not
