I upgraded to El Capitan yesterday afternoon. Everything went fine, there were no problems and all of my programs remained open. I closed InDesign earlier today and I went to open it again this afternoon, it crashes. Every time I try to open it, I get the pink loading screen then the "InDesign quit unexpectedly" dialog box. If I allow it to send an error report, I get a pop up box that says Adobe has fixed the crashing problem with CS6 and to "click here" for more info. I can't click it.. it makes the thud "you can't do that noise." I have tried downloading the java for El Capitan package and replacing it, and nothing changed. I have rebooted in safe mode and regularly multiple times, but at this point I am at a loss.
This is my work computer and I use InDesign for almost everything I do, so I really need help ASAP!
CS6 is not supported under El Capitan. There will be no fix from Adobe since the software is 3-1/2 years old.
Other CS6 users are also having problems as well.
Steve is correct but the one thing that seems to help crashing is turning off autohide menubars in the system preferences.
That said, you are on your own here. Good luck.
That's what I was afraid of. Another thing though that is a little odd, is it's just InDesign. I have Illustrator, Photoshop and Premiere Pro still running just fine.
