I have this annoying issue with InDesign and Illustrator. Strangely Photoshop works fine.
I am using a lot of expanded and docked pallets and I have saved my workspace profile. After I close InDesign and open in again, all pallets are collapsed and I have to manually expand them again. I have about 5 "columns" of docked pallets, and I have to click these small "<<" icons on every column every time.
Is there any settings or way to prevent this? Photoshop opens exactly how I close it...
