InDesign Customization Lost

Apr 20, 2012 9:37 AM

I’m using InDesign CS4 (ver. 6.0.6) on OSX 10.6.7. For the last few days everytime I start indd I lose any customization I’ve done to the program (such as units/increments, autocorrect, margins, grids, etc.) and thinks like Print Setups (these I’ve now saved so it’s easier to get back. BUT IT’S STILL ANNOYING!!!). Nothing has changed on my computer that I can think off. No new programs loaded. No new fonts.

 

I’ve restarted with preferences off. I’ve moved and renamed the Indesign Defaults and Indesign SavedData files to make program generate new ones. I still have the same problem. Is there anything else I can try?

    I'm the only user on this computer.

     

    Maybe I should just reload InDesign???

    Create a new user account and see if the behavior follows.

    You could certainly uninstall/reinstall InDesign; I give you 50/50% on having that solve your problem.

     

    A new user account takes 2 minutes to test, uninstall/reinstall is more like 30 minutes.

    You should also try temporarily removing all 3 plugins and seeing if that changes the behavior. Again, 1 minute to test...
