I found this article about cleaning things up in Finder:
It basically shows you how to remove old apps from the database of "things can edit" certain types of files.
I hope this helps!
Great find, Buck. I picked up a few new tips from the article, including how to relaunch Finder with Opt+Ctrl clicking on the dock icon.
I looked at this question last night, and didn't have any ideas. Foolishly, I executed the command in terminal this morning before looking at my Open With menu in Finder, and Edit With menu in InDesign so I'm unclear exactly what changed. Jason, I hope you will have time to come back and post screen shots after you follow the steps... I'm very curious to find out if cleaning up the Open With menu in Finder rolls over to the Edit With menu in InDesign.
I looked at both menus (macOS and Edit With in InDesign) and didn't really find much dead wood. Decided it wasn't worth experimenting.
@bucksommerkamp- Thank you. I ran the following script in the terminal, rebooted the machine and it actually removed the old options. Worked like a charm. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. The manual steps did not work by the way, or at least for me it did not work. So the terminal part did work. Here are the steps i used
1. Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app
2. Copied and pasted the following code in and hit enter
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Supp ort/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
3. restart computer
@Barbbinder - Here is an updated screen shot after I ran the above steps. It now only shows the current version of the apps, also no more errors. I checked the "Open with" menu option as well and the old versions were also removed there as well. I actually went to another site to get the steps. I wanted to make sure the code I was using was legit. Basically Apple creates the list based on when you open a file with applications or the system knows what applications open the files and stores this information in the Launch Services Database.
That's great! Thanks for cycling back with the update, Jason.
