For about a month now, every time I press ctrl + s to save my documents in InDesign it seems to lock all components of my document and won't let me edit it unless I close and open it again multiple times.
I'm running InDesign on Windows 8 and I know it's been known to be more glitchy on PCs than Macs, but is anyone else having this problem/know how to fix it?
My gut instinct is that ID actually is a lot more trouble-free on Windows 8 than it is on Yosemite, based on what we see here, but that's got nothing to do with your problem.
Unfortunately this didn't fix the problem. Now that I'm using InDesign more, it doesn't seem to be just when I save my documents; it seems to do it at random.
Could be a conflict with your anti-virus or a third-party plugin (including a font manager) or even a browser plugin.
