First thing I would try is a System Restore...
Thanks for your reply. My computer hasn't been keeping System Restores so I couldn't try a system restore.
I have tried reinstalling Indesign, which didn't make a difference. So I uninstall the entire suite and then installing it again. Photoshop and Illustrator all work fine still, just Indesign still has the same problems.
I went on the Adobe site and installed the latest software update for Indesign CS4 and it's still not working.
Thanks for your message.
In regards to the solutions these are the problems I'm running into. (By the way I have Windows 7)
Solution 1: The HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe folder has only Photoshop, no Indesign, Illustrator or the other products installed.
Solution 2: Tried it and it had the same problem in the new user account.
Solution 2: I wasn't too sure how to copy the code to the cmd my cmd.exe window has C:\Users\Incredible> I just tried typing C:\Users\Incredible>\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS4\Presets" /T /C /E /G Administrators:F
And I get the error '\Program" is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Solution 3: Again my C:\Program Files\Adobe\ only has Photoshop.
Solution 4: When I go to the folder \Program files\Adobe again there is no InDesign. I have gone thorugh <Incredible>/ AppData/ Roaming/ Adobe/ InDesign But there is on Presets folder only Version 6.0, which opens to en_GB and en_US. Inside each of those folders are the folders: CompositeFont, Scripts, Workspaces and two files: Color Settings, InDesign Defaults.
However those folders are empty and I can't open the two files.
Solution 5: I couldn't find where to "Turn User Account Control On or off"
Thanks heaps for your help.
I'm guessing you have Win7 64-bit. Ithe indesign folder is going to be in Program Files (x86). That means you need to adjust the command line path parameter in solution 2 (I'd try the vista version).
For the registry, try HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Adobe
And see if there's anything helpful here: How I fixed the missing shortcuts in InDesign CS4
Hallelujah! It works!!! Thanks for your help!
I found the Indesign folder via the Program Files (x86) created copies of the en_GB folders and renamed them en_US as suggested in Solution 4 - that didn't fix it yet.
Then I did Solution 3 Run a program as administrator. Now that I knew where my Indesign folder was I could execute this solution. Works like a dream!!
Thanks so much Peter!!!
