When in InDesign I go to File...New, and create a new document.
InDesign then usually stalls for a minute, and then crashes.
I can never create a new document. I have been opening old files, and then manipulating them to get what I need.
Any tips on how to get InDesign to work again?
You could start by telling us the version of ID and what operating system you’re running
I am currently using InDesign CC and I'm using Mac OS X Yosemite
Which version of CC? Did you install the update to CC2015 if that’s the version you’re running?
Have you tried trashing your preferences?
