Hi, I'm running OSX 10.7. Trying to open an Id file, that crashes on opening.
Looking through forums, people are suggesting deleting Recovery Data, but I can't find the folder.
I know it's a hidden folder, but the folder paths people are quoting don't make sense...
Macintosh: Hard Drive/Users/<USER>/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/<Version #>/<Language>/
What EXACTLY goes in <Version #>? Is it Version 5.5 or Version5.5 or V5.5?
What goes in <Language>? I'm in the UK. Is UK? or EN or en or GB?
I'm assuming because it's hidden the path will need a ~ at the start?
Any help gratefully received.
I've tried exporting to idml and opening as a copy, but the idml export fails to complete before the crash and the opening as a copy also crashes.
You don't need to put anything into the placeholders in the path -- you just need to recognize the substitutions. For CS5.5 the version # will be 7.5, and for UK English you should see en-UK. Basically, unless you have more than one version installed, you won't have choices to make, just drill down through the folders until you get to where you need to be.
Thanks. I'll have a look at it.
