Indeed,. Even better, make new small test doc with minimal info needed to test the problem. Either make a new doc, or if you need lots of the current doc's structure, attributes, etc., make a copy and then delete most of the general data. Having a small test doc makes it easier to see what works - or doesn't.

I'd love to say I always follow my advice here.  what I can say is that it's generally when I figure no test is needed that I break stuff I wish I hadn't.

This shouldn't scare new users. Undo, back-ups and Time Machine nearly always save your bacon, after a heart-in-mouth moment. Testing in a deliberate test doc is less stressful.
