I'm starting InDesign 5.5 in OS X 10.8.2 and whenever I start the app, it hangs.
I've taken a sample via Activity Monitor and have pasted the result here: http://pastebin.com/ppAhY4b5
I've tried deleting SING and Adobefnt*.lst, which has not helped. Oh, and I've also run "sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force" to no effect.
Did it ever start properly? If not, it probably never wrote the prefs, but hers' how to repalce them: Replace Your Preferences
If you want to try reinstalling, that's a valid thing to do, too, but I'd try a new user account, first, to be sure it hangs there, too, or you're just wasting your time. If it works in a new user, see Adobe Forums: InDesign crashes at startup for a list of other files to try removing from your first user account. If you need to reinstall, run the clean tool first: CS Cleaner Tool for installation problems | CCM, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, CS4, CS3
So yeah, it did for a long time, then it suddenly stopped starting yesterday.
I created a new account and it had the same issue there, so I uninstalled InDesign (used cleaner tool afterwards, but it didn't find any cs5.5 stuff), then reinstalled it. It has the same issue
Any other ideas?
Trashed the prefs by holding down the keys at startup. Same hanging...
Removed extra files from the other link. Same hanging...
No 3rd party plugins, no other font manager. I do have Adobe CS5 Indesign/Photoshop/Illustrator installed.
