InDesign 5.5 Weirdness, Possibly Due to OS X Maverick Upgrade

Oct 29, 2013 12:06 PM

Experiencing some unusual activity (listed below) when using InDesign 5.5 this morning after installing OS X Maverick last week; whether it's related or not, I don't know.


• When selecting an object, be it a text box or image, it will move the object out of position, sometimes by a fraction of a cm, sometimes by an inch.

• Unable to change colour of object/text by either selecting the colour from 'Swatches" or from the colour drop-down on the control bar.

• Unable to change character or paragraph styles from their window, but can change when using drop-down menu on control bar.


I have trashed all my preferences a bunch of times and even reinstalled but still no solution to this weirdness.

    No guarantees. While I have Mavericks, I don't use CS5.5. It opens, but that's all I know.


    It was not one of the versions tested (or slated to be fixed by Adobe). Only CS6 and CC.

    I'm glad you reported it. Love those handy third party utilities. Hate those pesky third party utilities....
