For the last 5 months I have had good days & bad days with InDesign CS4. We use it here at the office and I am the only 1 who is having this problem. I work on a MacBook Pro, 17" with Snow Leopard. We have the CS4 package. I can be typing all day long in InDesign, saving quite a bit (just because I have to) and out of the blue when I attempt to save, it will come up with an error that it can't save a file because it is damaged. This is something that happens a couple of times per week.
Things I have tried. I took my computer to the Apple Genius Bar and they said that it may have something to do with the fact that I was "restarting" my computer and not shutting it down all the way. So over the course of the last several months I have shut my computer down completely whenever I have had this error, waited a minute and turned it back on. Still having the problem.
Last week I was working in Illustrator and it also locked up on me and told me that it was going to shut down. It got stuck in the "shutting down" mode so I was forced to shut my computer down manually. When I turned it on later, NONE of my Adobe programs would open. I uninstalled the complete Creative Suite & reinstalled it. Even after all of the, still none of the Adobe programs would open. I wasn't sure what to do at that point so I did a complete erase of my hard drive and reinstalled the operating system along with all of my programs (including the Creative Suite). Everything worked fine for 4 days. Today it happened again. As I was typing in InDesign and went to save it said that I could not save because the file was Damaged and it forced me to shut my whole computer down before I could do anything else.
I called Apple, they told me it was an Adobe problem
I called Adobe, they told me to get on the forum
