Using InDesign CS4 (version 6.0.6) on a MacBook Pro:
Recently whenever I open a menu item, e.g. "Links" the palette will open but so will every other pallete neatly arranged as one large group in an accordian fashion. I have tried everything I can think of, dumping preferences, saved data. But to no avail? It doesn't what menu item I open, they all behave like this.
That's a workspace issue. Try resetting the workspace.
Thanks Peter. Yes, it was definitely workspace related. But I am not sure what casused the issue. Resetting the Essentials workspace did not help. I also removed all workspaces from within the Preference folder in hopes in would rectify the issue. And that was no help either. I was getting hasty so I used time machine and reverted an to an older enUS folder from the past, which did fix the issue. I wish I had the time to try one folder at a time.
In any event, since this appears very uncommon I am hoping this is the last I will have to worry about this.
