I have also experienced that. Also only with and Indesign
generated PDF.... I just end up saving with another file and then delet
ing the other one
We shouldn't have to save every exported PDF as an different file name OR delete the original. On my G5 running Leopard and the same InDesign CS4, I can export that PDF regardless of whether it is selected in Finder.
Does anyone know how to stop this behavior? Maybe it's OS related.
Agreed, would also love to know the solution, annoys me to no end. Strange but it only happens somedays! think Indesign's
mind goes wonky when you pdf a file over and over...
If running OSX 10.6.7
I think it is due to your Finder settings.
Using column view the .pdf file is generating a preview in the right column, thus it is in use and cannot be overwritten.
Try changing to list view and it is no longer in use.
Yes it is annoying when you prefer column view.
