Prior to CC Membership, I had Ai CS5 and PS CS5. I just signed up for Creative Cloud, and I need InDesign. Since downloading Id CC, the type tool doesn't work in either Ai CS5 or Id CC. In PS, if I try to create a text box, I get an error: "Could not complete your request because something prevented the text engine from being initialized". When I uninstall Id, everything works fine. (My CS5 versions, that is).
I am hoping this is a simple quick-fix, but talking to Adobe Help Online didn't help. Not sure if the guy knew anything. I cannot find information on this problem anywhere. I need Id as soon as possible. It is pointless without type.
For reference, I am running the programs on a Win 8 PC.
I have found that changing the font to a non-default font, like agency, it appears to type, but once you finish type and select text box, it looks like a white rectangle, type disappears.
Is indesign update to latest patch 9.1?
So, I uninstalled InDesign CC, and all is working fine.
There is something going on with CC that is getting all screwy. The good news is, I found out I already have InDesign CS5, just didnt realize it. So, for now I will use that. But, I would hope this gets resolved so I can eventually get CC.
