There's a bunch of things you can try:
- Empty Trash if there is any and Reboot your laptop.
- In a Finder Window, right-click Macintosh HD and choose Get Info. Check to see what your hard drive Capacity is and if you have enough empty space Available. If not enough, remove content from your hard drive to make space (e.g. copy to external drive for example).
- Then I'd probably do run (after running a full system backup with Time Machine) is a disk permissions check & repair. In Applications > Utilities folder there is an application called Disk Utility you can use for this – for info: How & Why to Repair Disk Permissions in OS X with Disk Utility
- Next reset your InDesign preferences and clear font caches – see: InDesign preferences and support file locations
- Temporarily disable any third-party plug-ins you might have installed – see: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/troubleshoot-indesign-third-party-plug.html
- With all of that done, try to create a new document in InDesign, add some text to it and save it.
Hopefully this will have fixed the issue you were experiencing.
Cari left out run the latest update for InDesign CS6....
P Spier is right (thanks P!) – I missed a step :
- Before step 6. Run the Updater. If you have CS6 not as part of the Creative Cloud, select Check for Updates from the Help menu and update to v8.0.2, else you can click Update next to the InDesign CS6 app in the Creative Cloud Desktop application and update to v8.1.
Thanks for your help.
When I create a new document I´m able to save it. I then copy the unsaveable document into that document - then it´s not savable. Could andy of the "mounted" pictures cause the save/not save problem?
Did you update ID?
OK, so that is good news in a way.
- Being able to save a new document.
- But now it's a matter of finding out why your original document doesn't save.
You can try saving the problem file to IDML.
- Open document.
- File > Save As. Change Format to InDesign Markup (IDML).
- this will save off a .IDML file.
And then recompiling the IDML file in InDesign:
- Choose File > Open
- Navigate to the .IDML file and double-click
- The InDesign file will be recomposed.
- Now try to save this file as a new InDesign document.
Does that work?
