Mac? Is the Application Frame turned on?
Sorry forgot to mention..PC
Check Pereferences > Interface > Panels > Enable Floating Document Window Docking
If it's disabled, it's possible you have a maximized or oversized document window covering up the rest of the workspace.
1. Enable "Enable Floating Document Window Docking"
2. Resize the document window smaller
3. Dock the document window

That's a good possibility. I just tried that here and it covers the docked panels, but not the free-floaters, in my workspace.
Working with docs as tabs is a better way to go, in my opinion.

I agree. Can't seem to acclimate to it in Photoshop, but it seems to make perfect sense in InDesign.
ok, the 'enable floating...' wasn't enabled, however what i didnt realise is that i had to restart indesign for the changes to take effect....now i have the lovely task of reorganising my workspace that ive been tweaking over the last year
Many thanks for your help anyway
