What version of ID? What version of OSX?
OSX is 10.10.5, but it did it on earlier versions too. ID version 2015.1 Release 188.8.131.52 Build. Mac is MacBook Pro (15 inch, Late 2011) 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7
This is still happening. I can repeat it like clockwork. Force quitting and restarting INDD while trashing prefs is only way to work again, but then I have to reset all prefs (usually lose last part of work since manual Save, even with auto recovery!) Simply restarting INDD only opens to non-functional menus. This is getting pretty old. Probably sounds crazy, but I never have crashes when using a mouse. I prefer to use trackpad working at home. I have put masking tape across trackpad to try and train myself not to touch right half, and now lower third, or the spinning wheel takes off. Again, all trackpad gestures are turned off. Should some be turned on? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Anybody else seen this?
Mac works flawlessly otherwise. Trackpad fine with all other apps. I will try upgrading to El Capitan and report back. Not upgraded yet.
