Moving this discussion to the InDesign forum.
CS4 is unsupported under Mavericks and if it was installed using migration assistant that makes it even worse.
Use the CC Cleaner tool and remove all traces of it and install it using the original media.
And a missing plugins warning such as you describe usually indicates the file was saved in a newer version...
You can install Adobe Programs ONLY from the originals installer which is provided from Adobe. Time Machine (which is a form of migration) will not result in working Adobe programs. As Bob said, use the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool, which is also working for CS versions, to wipe out everything from Adobe and start with a clean installing.
I am not sure, if CS4 is running on Maverick, at least it is not supported officially, your are here alone. It might be so that you have to upgrade your software to a later version.
