Opening Screen Im getting with Alert window
ID General Setting, I think they are correct but I am getting the above window.
Thanks for the reply Bob,
Settings are set to “show “start” workspace when no Documents are open” which I think is correct. I tested it both selected and Unselected and I get the same result.
I tried to send a screen cap again (above) with no luck, do you have a email I could forward to?
If you don't want the start screen you need to disable it in your prefs. You can post screenshots here by using the small camera icon in the reply box.
If this helps figure this issue out:
I can open the documents in "finder" but not via the Adobe Black/Gray startup screen.
I am using a Mac with El Cap

Regarding question 3:
Pretty Sure this is the error message you're referring to.
I was repeatedly getting this with some files also, and realized that (at least on a Mac) if the file is within any folder that has a slash mark ( / ) in its name, it will not open.
A file located in a folder structure like this will cause issues:
Desktop / Design/Layout_Files / example_indesign_filename.indd
Design/Layout_Files is the offending folder in this instance.
Yes, that is the "alert" I am getting. BUT, my issue is in relation to opening InDesign documents from the "Recent Files" Workspace page/window. My workaround is to turn this window OFF in the Preferences>General window. And open documents from the Finder. Not Ideal but it works.
Thank you however for the file naming "slash mark" suggestion.
I also was unable to use the Recent Files workspace window to open files, though using Finder to open them worked. Might be worth double-checking that there are no special characters causing problems. Good luck!
