Hi there,

I am currently using InDesign 2021 and when I try to open the 'burger' menu on the top right of the page below the gear icon nothing happens. An example of when I try to access this menu is when I am using the type tool. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Rich

Is this hapening with all files or only some files? Have you quit and relaunched the program? Have you tried rebuilding preferences?

To rebuild preferences:

(Windows) Start InDesign, and then immediately press Shift+Ctrl+Alt. Click Yes when asked if you want to delete preference files.

(Mac OS) Start InDesign, and then immediately press Shift+Option+Command+Control. Click Yes when asked if you want to delete preference files.

Hi vladan & Scott,

thanks so much for the quick reply and as both of you have suggested I reset my preferences and this has fixed my problem. I tried resetting InDesign earlier today but obviously I did not do it correctly.

Cheers Rich
