Yeah I bet you are working on Lion.
If Lion, then
This is extremelly annoying.

Yup, working on Lion.
I just found out a way around the issue however. If I not only close the document, but also the application window before quitting InDesign CS6, then the next time I launch it I get the welcome screen and no documents are open on startup. Extra step that I didn't have to go through with CS5, but at least it's a solution.
Yes ! Your solution is the best for me. Thanks
I'm working on Mountain Lion and CS5. I have the preference mentioned above in the older OS UNCHECKED (techinically checked, because the option is "close windows when quitting application") - yet ID (and the rest of the CS5 suite) still insists on opening the last file I had open upon quitting the app.
Has there been some added option in CS5 to keep these things open upon quitting? It does this all the time and is rather annoying, espeically if I am starting a new project and I have to wait for the old one to load before closing and opening the one I need.
