SVG Problems

0 votes
I'm having problems exporting with the SVG setting. it seems to get to about 40%, freezes, and then crashes.

Are there any things I should be looking for in my document that could be causing an error?

I'm sorry about that. 
Here are a few things to try:
  1. Save/export the INDD file as an IDML file, then save it back to INDD. This usually clears out any lingering issues within an INDD file.
  2. Clear your InDesign preferences (best practice after a crash). 
    Quick reset: Launch or re-launch InDesign, and as the program launches immediately hold down the CTL+OPT+CMD+Shift keys on Mac (or CTL+ALT+Shift on Windows), until InDesign asks you if you want to reset the preferences. Click yes to reset.
  3. Note which page may be causing the crash, paste the elements from that page into a new document and try exporting that document. This can narrow down the issue significantly.
Also worth noting, crashes are sometimes specific to particular versions of InDesign.
I've not seen this specific issue before, so if you're not able to resolve the issue with the steps above, please send a small file that replicates the issue and I will investigate directly:
