  1. Hi, I have done this…several times and still no joy. Any other suggestions? thanks

  2. @d.reeves: I am sorry I have no more solutions. Did you Google the problem for other problems that might cause the error?

  3. I have wasted a hole day trying to google this. There is no help on the Apple site although similar complaints go back to around 2008. One other alternative I have come across is the use of italicised text causing the crash. Unfortunately my iBooks Author document will not stay open long enough to find and adjust the italicised text.

    However, I managed to get to File –> New and then close the file that caused the crash. Other iBook files have opened fine and the new one does not cause a crash.

    Any more thoughts anyone???
