    File in use when creating PDF

    kimberlywrede

      I've been having this problem for years. When I export an indd file (fileA.indd) to PDF (fileA.pdf), attach that PDF in an email, go back to inDesign to make changes, then try to export again to the same PDF name (fileA.pdf), I get a file is in use message. I have closed all finder windows, closed Mail, closed Acrobat, closed fileA.pdf, closed and re-opened inDesign. The only thing that works now is to restart the computer. I can work around by changing the PDF name each time but would prefer to fix the problem. I used to be able to solve this by closing Mail, finder windows, & Acrobat but that no longer works.
