I am new to InDesign and opened up the program just to take a look. I tried doing a couple of things and as I was unable to start a new document, I decided to quit the program and reopen it, but when I did I got a message that it "Cannot handle the request because a modal dialog or alert is active." I would appreciate any ideas on what is going on. I am using a Mac.
There's a dialog box open that you are not seeing.
