CS6 on Mac:
I have a custom workspace saved but now when I open InDesign I only see the little application bar, and none of my toolbars.
What's up with that???
Try hitting Esc. Sounds like you are starting up in Presentation mode.
It hasn't happened for a while but I'm not sure what fixed it. Not terribly helpful but if it happens again I'll try your solution, cheers.
