Try throwing away your indesign prefference file and reboot.
Go the HD/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.InDesign.7.0.4.plist and com.adobe.InDesign.7.0.plist
Hope it helps
I've tried that already, with no success. It seems as if Finder changed with the 10.7.4 update and no longer supports the parameter that Indesign is looking for to open the file. It's really weird, though, because the other Adobe products don't have this problem-Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, etc. still open files like they used to.
I read some blogs just now. do you have characters like # or / in the name?
also, if you have spaces between words, either put an _ or just delete the space.
I am still researching.
The files don't contain any characters like # or / that could cause problems. None of the folder names contained a space, but the file name did. I copied the file and renamed it as test.indd, but it still gave me the exact same error.
Interesting... it does seem as if this is history repeating itself. I guess maybe we'll just need to wait for Apple or Adobe to release a fix for this.
Do you also have Suitcase Fusion installed on your machine ? If yes which version is it..
No, we don't have Suitcase on our machines. We're using Font Explorer X Pro version 3 for our font management.
Jeff, could you provide the following information w.r.t to this issue
- Have you tried using SMB/FTP instead of AFP ?
- Can you share the complete network path with .indd filename just to see the type of characters used in folder name and file name.
- Do you have any other version of Indesign also installed on your machine ? or is this only ID CS5.5
- The files you are opening are created natively in ID CS5.5 or these are the converted files of previous versions.
I hadn't tried using SMB/FTP instead of AFP, but I just tried that and it will open fine over SMB. I didn't try FTP, Apple removed the FTP sharing from Lion Server.
The complete network path to the file is afp://172.16.0.23/CarlisleFile/B/Back To Health Center/Biz Card.indd
The only version of Indesign on the machine is CS5.5
I've tested this on files that were converted from older versions of Indesign and also files that were created in CS5.5
