File location for saved Document Presets (Mac)

Hello,

 

Unfortunately InDesign's latest update rendered a plug-in I need useless, so I reverted back to 16.2.1, extra-unfortunately this deleted most preferences and removed all my saved Document Presets.

 

Is there a specific location where these custom presets get saved? InDesign updates regularly remove them, so it would be good to be able to create a backup.

 

Thanks,

Adam

It's in the Preferences. Saved inside the InDesign Defaults file. Regards, Uwe Laubender ( ACP )

Thanks Uwe, can you tell me which of the Preferences/Cache/InDesign Defaults/InDesign SavedData contain 'saved blank document presets'? I can't see that info on the page.

Many thanks, that's the one!

 

I was a bit confused because InDesign has kept my custom workspaces but deleted this defaults file and all my saved scripts – this made me think they'd be saved in very different places, rather than within the same broad folder.

"Unfortunately InDesign's latest update rendered a plug-in I need useless"

 

May I ask what plug-in this is?

Did you contact the developer of that 3rd-party plug-in?

Sorry, that wasn't really relevant to the problem! The plug-in is EasyCatalog Lite and the developer seems to be working on a fix already, so that's all good.

 

Thanks,

Adam
