    Missing 'Proximity' in InDesign 6 after migration




      Small annoying problem!


      After migrating to my new iMac, InDesign has lost the 'Proximity' hypenation settings.


      Short of a full reinstall of CS6 iCloud, I can find no other solution online.


      My problem is that I have InDesign set up with over 8 years of tweaks, PDF export settings for hundreds of publication, etc., etc. so I am not keen to have to go down that route. It would be disasterous if I hadn't exported everything correctly in order to reinstall as it could cost me dozens and dozens of unchargeable man-hours to get things back how they are, just so I didn't get that message everytime I open a document (I rarely use hypenated text so nothing yet has reflowed, but it might just be a matter of time if I don't get this sorted).


      Surely there is a way of installing/fixing this.

          Moving this discussion to the Adobe InDesign forum.  The users in this forum may have some suggestions on how to restore this functionality.


          My advice however would be to remove all of your Adobe Creative software and reinstall from the Adobe Application Manager.  Our software is not designed to be transferred from one computer to another.  In fact users who often choose this option end up having a variety of unexpected difficulties.

            Jeff is correct.


            On the good news front, you should be able to save most things, like print presets and export presets from the Define dialoges, and workspaces, queries and keyboard shortcuts directly from the folders where they are stored, then its only a matter of reloading them. Save your Indesign Defaults and InDesign Saved Data files, and you won't even need to reload some of the stuff (but you should still back it up). See Replace Your Preferences
