Mac 10.12.5. Adobe uptodate creative suite.
So as the topic suggests anytime I open a document 3 weeks older or more, I get the spinning ball of annoyance, have to force quit InDesign and send a report to Apple, then InDesign opens with the document I wanted to open, open. So frustrating... anyone know a solution?
Also another annoyance is I have to close Safari if I want to resize/scale the contents of anything - again any solution?
Presumably you're using InDesignCC2015/2017 and have installed the very latest versions (and your Mac complies with the required spec) ?
If so, try this, reset your InDesign preferences and see if that sorts it:
Close InDesign. Then hold down Ctrl + Alt + Shift (Windows) or Cmd + Ctrl + Opt + Shift (Mac), and relaunch InDesign. Respond in the affirmative to the dialog asking if you really want to replace the preferences.
