I've checked the topics you suggested, I've deleted preferences, I've had an Adobe rep take over my computer. Right now I am at a point where no matter what I do, InDesign will not launch, even after uninstalling it and reinstalling it (which worked until today). I am at a loss ... I can't work without it, so I will keep trying to uninstall/reinstalland hopefully I will get lucky.
OS 10.11.3 El Capitan
Latest version of InDesign CC
I have reinstalled, choosing the option to remove preferences each time.
I finally got it to open, here is what I had to do:
Turned off all fonts
Uninstalled Creative Cloud Desktop
Reinstalled Creative Cloud Desktop
When it happens again, I will try creating a new user ID and see what happens/
Don't create a new user ID, create only a new user in your OS, otherwise you will experience huge licencing problems.
What I would recommend: Uninstall InDesign, run the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool (available on Adobe's website), restart the computer, install the Creative Cloud Application again. From there install all your applications.
Did you install InDesign from the original installer or did you migrate it from a backup or other computer or from TimeMachine?
I installed it from the original installer and I've removed it and reinstalled it a few times to try to get it to stop acting funny. I also get an issue where I can't open the CC panel at all and have to uninstall it.
I did not only tell you to uninstall, I recommended to run the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool. Do that.
What I did got it working, but next time I have the issue I am going to do that for sure! Thank you for the advice,
My saga continues ... yesterday InDesign crashed at spell check so I uninstalled it, uninstalled CC, ran CC Cleaner (which i had not tried before) and reinstalled everything and it was fine. Today I went to start working and no InDesign files would open at all. I tried opening a Photo shop file and it was fine, so I don't think it's the drive (I use a RAID). I tried to quit inDeisn to restart, but it wouldn't quit. I did a force quit and tried to relaunch and it wouldn't launch. I'm in the process or uninstalling/reinstalling now.
