InCopy 2023 Update - can't set 2023 program as default for INDD files?

Hi! The editorial team I am a part of uses InCopy, and with the new 2023 version, we can't seem to set it as the default program for .INDD files. The 2023 version can still open .INDD files when the 2022 version isn't installed (in my case, I haven't uninstalled it on my computer yet, so .INDD files are opened by 2022 instead of 2023), but we can't set it as the default. Does anyone know if this is just a bug with the new release? I've been looking around the internet, but I can't seem to find any posts about it. I know we can work around it for now, but I'd like to make sure there's not something I'm overlooking.

 

We work on Windows 10 PCs, in case that's relevant.

 

Thanks!

That's an operating system issue and I've seen it in the past. The only fix I ever found was to re-install it.

Another option is to use Bridge and associate INDD files with InCopy 2023 there.

Thanks so much! I just did a fresh install, and it sorted itself out.
