Version of InDesign? Version of Mac OS X? Can you attach a screen capture of your InDesign window using the "camera icon" so we can tell better what's going on, please.
Thank you very much for your reply.I have the just installed the latest version of InDesign downloaded yesterday, whatever it is.It is a trial version.Not sure what you mean by tanking the picture with "camera icon". Sorry, I am quite new to Mac. I have used PC before, so I am just learning how to use Mac.The InDesign takes the whole screen. I have just discovered that when I open a new document it is smaller inside InDesign so is not taking the whole screen, but I wish I can shrink the whole InDesign window with the whole toolbar and menus since on my screen it all goes across the whole screen.
That has nothing at all to making Windows users feel at home. I think the
application frame was added in CS4 and at that point was turned off by
default but that's when Adobe began to bring all of the app interfaces
I don't even remember whether it's on or off by default anymore.
@Bob and @tman, the Application Frame is turned OFF by default on Macs. When I'm teaching classes to Mac students I suggest they may want to turn it on as it's less distracting: They can focus on InDesign, and not on the Finder desktop or other applications.
@lightvision, I didn't mean you take a picture with the "camera" icon, I meant you should take a screen capture of what you're seeing in InDesign (Cmd-Shift-3 on a Mac), then use the "camera" icon to attach the picture to your reply. I'm not sure you have the Application Frame on (found in the Window menu), but I couldn't tell what you're experiencing without seeing it.
Thank you so much for all your help. I was now able to fix it. It was after all the problem with the application frame being Off by dafout. It was showing up, but taking my whole descktop. Now when I followed your advice and checket it on under "Window" , it become much smaller and I am not able to resize it and the buttons to minimize or close it are now showing up (they were invisible before). Thank you so much to all of you who have helped me here.
If I may have one more question, I have enocuntered another problem with using this Trial version of inDesign. When I wanted to access Bridge from the Bridge icon inside the program, I got an message that I need to download it from Creative Clowd. I found it strange since I have Photoshop CS6 and Brigge is part of this program, so I don't want to pay for it via Clowd service.
I was able to open Bridge by just clicking on the program from my software launch screen, so it is now working along InDesign, but I wanted it to be part of the InDesign workspcace, so it would show along the program frame on the right of InDesign window and then could be attached there and moved along with it. In such set up I won't need to move each program frame separatelly when they are in my way while I work. I wonder if it could be fixed and how. Any ideas? I would appreciate very much your reply.
That's a great question. Unforunately, Adobe Bridge CC isn't installed by default as it was in early versions of the Creative Suite, like CS6. You need to download from the Creative Cloud, but you don't have the subscription for all the CC applications. So I guess you'll have to continue to use Bridge CS6 as you're using it.
Thank you very much for your reply to my question. It is starnge that Adobe is forcing me to buy a subscription to a program that I already have. Doesn't make too much sense. I guess I have no other option, but just to use it outside of InDesign. This is not convenient, but it looks like there is no other way to do it.
All the best to you,
