the boilerplate answer is that CS6 isn't strictly compatible with Sierra. a solution might rest on other CS6 and sierra users having experienced and resolved something similar, but I haven't seen this myself.
Thanks! Do you have any idea if Adobe plans to update Sierra so that it is compatible with CS6? Or they're just leaving all of the "old" customers with an essentially useless product, forcing them to unwillingly switch to CC? I'm so disappointed. And of course, as a CS6 user I'm not welcome to call them with my question. This is ridiculous.

adobe aren't responsible for Sierra, but no, CS6 will never receive any more updates.
True. Any way, not cool.
IF anyone else out there faced this bug before, I look forward to hearing your experience. Thanks
Just to clarify Doug's correct answer—Apple is in charge of the Mac operating system, Adobe is in charge of InDesign and Illustrator. The two companies release upgrades independently of each other. Apple has continued to upgrade their operating system. CS6 reached end of life a few years ago—meaning Adobe will no longer update CS6, and will instead direct their focus to make sure that the newer releases work on the newest operating systems.
If you don't want to upgrade to CC, consider returning to an operating system that CS6 is supported on.
- Mac OS X v10.6.8 or v10.7. Adobe Creative Suite 5, CS5.5, and CS6 applications support Mac OS X Mountain Lion (v10.8) when installed on Intel-based systems.
