What was the earlier version that you were using before upgrading to 11.4?
Do you see more than one folder at the location as mentioned below ?
While upgrading to 11.4, did you have to uninstall InDesign for some reason ?
I do regular updates, so pretty sure I upgraded from the one version before this.
I only see a Version 11.0 folder, in which there's 1 subfolder called en_GB.
I have not uninstalled previous version, but did find all Windows taskbar links of Adobe programs to be dead links after the update. So that makes me think the old versions were deleted.
Every patch update of InDesign automatically migrates previous or existing settings to the new version.
All your workspace changes and custom workspaces are stored in relevant sub folders of locale folder (en_GB in your case).
If those changes are no longer shown in InDesign, it is quite a possibility that your preferences were removed during the update and it generally happens when for some reason one has to uninstall InDesign and happens to choose 'Remove App preferences' option. (If uninstalled via creative cloud)
You have also mentioned that Ai and Ps are also showing the same issue. By any chance have you happened to change your Creative cloud language ?
No, haven;t changed language or anything like that.
Would be good to have these settings in the cloud, so they can also be applied when loggin in from another computer.
These settings are pretty important to retain my workflow.
Are you trying to access your settings on the system other than the one in which you had saved your settings ?
No, that is a different question. This case is about my main workstation where I've been building the workspaces on in previous versions.
No trace of my previous settings... so I guess I have to rebuild my workspace, colour settings, etc again?
