I'm submitting this post because I've come to a point of frustration with indesign. Being that I'm mostly a photoshop designer I rely heavily on layers and using layers effectively. The problem seems to be that everytime I open indesign, paste a new document, or generally do much of anything and then go back to the layer panel to select another layer I find that it's been conveniently collapsed for me.
Is there a way to force the panel to remain uncollapsed rather than (in)conveniently collapsing all layers?
If there is I don't know it and I'd find it useful myself.
Unfortunately that option is already unchecked. I'm not having difficulty accessing the Layers panel itself, its the layers inside that get collapsed under "Layer 1" or similar layers. I must click on the arrow pip in order to edit the layers almost any time I do something because it collapses down so I can see none of the objects in the layer.
The behavior is unpredictable at best. I can certainly expect that when I open or create a new file I will have to do this, but then also after copying images, importing them into frames, adding text... basically operations that add new objects tend to cause the layer to collapse. It's beyond annoying.
