I'm using IDCS6 on a Mac with dual monitors. I was previously using OS X 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion). I used my main monitor to display the document, and my second monitor for all of my palettes, and saved this as my default workspace. I recently installed OS X 10.11.3 (El Capitan). InDesign seems to work fine, but for some reason my palettes always end up displayed on my main monitor, on top of my document. I manually moved my palettes to my 2nd monitor and saved the workspace under a new name, but the palettes still move to my main monitor when I open ID or when I select my custom workspace. It even moves the palettes when I switch between applications (CMD-Tab). It's very irritating. I am constantly moving palettes out of the way.
How do I fix this?
CS6 is unsupported on El Capitan. The forum is full of problems with it.
Beyond rolling back to your earlier operating system, you're on your own here as CS6 has reached EOL.
Thanks, Bob. I was afraid of that. I have my old Mountain Lion on a separate partition, so I can use it if necessary.
I wonder why Apple can't release OS X updates without breaking legacy software and forcing users to buy new applications? It's one of the few things I dislike about Apple. It's the main reason I delay updating my O/S.
