Are you accessing the file from the server ?
Are you using Indesign CS6 or Indesign Server CS6 ?
I am accessing files from a local drive.
I am using Indesign CS6.
Thanks for asking!
Hi, I've the same problem, using indesign CS6, windows 7 64 bit. The "funny" thing: till yesterday everything went right. Maybe a windows update crashed something?
For me it looks like there's a storage problem. First I can work as usual, after a while there's the failure notice "please close ...." If you shut down indesign and reopen it you can work for a few actions, then the message returns.
I decided to call support.
I've called 2 times.
First time: on hold for one hour. agent picks up and I say hello, and I am disconnected.
Second time: on hold for 20 minutes. agent picks up and I say hello, start to describe the problem, and I am disconnected.
I've called the support, too. Waiting time 1 or 2 minutes, absolutely great.
First thing (erase indesign 8 folder from appdata) didn't work.
Now I'm trying the thing under a new administrative user - we'll see how long this will work.
Thanks to the support man, hope this is the solution. I will report after a few jobs.
This is a major problem for me too. I'm trying to finish the layout of a 52 page magazine and I cannot open more than one file at a time. Its really frustrating!
Running CS6, on local drive, using OSX Mountain Lion.
Surely they have to sort this problem out pretty quickly.
Me too, first I think may be may computer not enough memory (small RAM). But now I think it is not problem with RAM.
As a general comment, most users don't have a problem opening multiple files, so this is probably something local on all of your systems (though not necessarilty the same thing).
Standard things to try for troubleshooting are removing all third-party plugins, including any font manager auto-activation, creating a new user account and try that, trash your prefs (see Replace Your Preferences) and start your machine with background programs disabled.
