Over the past couple weeks, InDesign files have randomly been unable to save or undo while working on a file. The key commands to not work, and the commands are grayed out in the menu.
If I try to quit and click "save" in the window that pops up ("save changes to the document before closing?"), I just get a message that the file was unable to save.
I have tried force quitting, reopening files, and quickly saving them as new files to see if it was a specific file corruption, but the issue is still there.
I'm unable to save my work, and currently unable to complete projects, so this is unnacceptable.
I'm using InDesign 16.1 on a Macbook Pro with Big Sur 11.2.3. (Everything is up to date.) No weird plugins or tablets.
you could try to delete InDesign preferences
Thank you! This seems to be working for the time being. Will report back if it keeps happening!
