Just upgraded to an M1 Mac mini running macOS Monterey. How do I know if the version of InDesign I'm using is the M1 version? If I click on the app and "Get Info" it says it's a Universal application. Does that mean M1?

Install your program to the latest version available for you from the CC application and you will get what fits best for your processor.

Well, I just got a new M1 Mac mini and upgraded to macOS Monterey. I used my Time Machine backup to migrate my old data to the new Mac mini. So do I need to uninstall and reinstall InDesign?

Never use Time Machine to install any Adobe Program. Due to hinder the installation of illegal copy there are some files which would cause problems in the error free use even if it is the same processor. This causes massive problems. If you have done so, delete and uninstall everything from Adobe and install it again from Adobe Installers. In the case of the CC you have to do it with the CC application.

This sure is a new one on me! I've been using InDesign since version 1 and have upgraded machines and OSes for years, always using Time Machine to restore all my programs. I'll give it a try, though (once I'm done with the half dozen or so projects I'm working on right now that are due ASAP, of course!).

 

Thanks for the advice, Willi!
