    InDesign CS6 ( crash at startup OS X

    Umami Design

      Just began experiencing constant crashes upon startup with InDesign CS6 ( on OS X 10.8.2. The report can be found here (https://gist.github.com/3971663).


      I haven't added any new applications or fonts. So, any thoughts towards this issue would be much appreciated -as currently I'm stomped.

          So...did you update 10.8.2 from a working install under 10.8.1? Or from 8.0.0 to 8.0.1?

          This kind of crash:

          suggests an installation failure of somesort -- the app has only barely started to run.

          Did you trash your preferences? Try a new user account?

            Trashing the preference cured the issue. For those finding this issue you'll find that preference file located at:

            drive / library / preferences / com.adobe.InDesign.7.0/plist

            Note the "com.adobe.InDesign.7.0.plist" file may be different. However, locate "InDesign...plist" and you'll likely he fine.


            And to answer your questions, John...the update from OS 10.8.1 > OS 10.8.2 was performed via the App Store. The InDesign update from 8.0.0 > 8.0.1 was performed using Adobes "AdobeInDesign8Patch-All.dmg."


            Thank you, John! The preference reminder was much appreciated.
