I have a large document (40,000 words) with lots of subdocuments and research documents. My Imac said it was open on my laptop (where it wasn't). So I opened it up again on the laptop to close it definitively, and it went to rebuild indexes. It hung on a particular subdocument for a few minutes, so I force-quit, and reopened. I plugged in the laptop, and it's now been indexing that particular subdocument for 40 minutes or so. Any suggestions?
I strongly suggest that you contact Literature and Latte support directly: firstname.lastname@example.org . This sort of thing (a possibly corrupt project that hangs on rebuilding indexes) is extremely difficult to troubleshoot in a forum, and the lack of users chiming in with helpful suggestions says to me that no one who's active on the forums has had it happen to them. I haven't—I'm sorry I can't offer any further suggestions.
So you know where I'm coming from:
