All-of-a-sudden, InDesign won't let me save or export a PDF from any .INDD file I open. OS X Catalina. As soon as I select the Save As... or select on the PDF export presents commands, I get the spinning wheel of death on my iMac.

 

No files work. None.

 

Any ideas?

Restarting the Mac fixed it. "Did you turn it off and turn it back on again?" - IT Crowd 

That is NOT a fix for what is a chronic and deal-breaker problem. If there were an alternatve to Illustrator I would have jumped long ago. In fact, long ago I did: to Canvas and then to Freehand, both RIP. As a monopoly, Adobe has no insentive to fix anything that is broken.
