InDesign 17.01 - Recent file thumbnails on Home Screen not displaying

Whenever I open Indesign 17.01  the Home screen does not display an image of the recent files made in the past two weeks. It does however correctly display the images of files I made previously.

When I open Indesign 16.4 instead, all the Recent files are displayed with an image.

Can anyone recommend how to fix this please?

I have recently upgraded from OS Big Sur to OS Monterey. Could this be the reason for the problem?

Update to my previous post.

Following a Community suggestion I tried the following:

Indesign - preferences - file handling: Saving Indesign files, Number of recent items to display = 20, Always save preview images with Documents (box ticked).

Then I did a restart of my Mac. Now the Home page for Indesign doesnt show ANY recents, let alone ones with images!

Help!

Hi Mary,

well, in your second screenshot you see the InDesign UI the way you do after a fresh install, the "factory settings" so to say.

You may have trashed your preferences and caches. So all info about recently opened InDesign documents is deleted and not available anymore.

 

Back to your issue with the previews of the documents:

Can you see the previews of your InDesign documents if you list the files in Adobe Bridge?

That would be the proof if InDesign has written any previews of pages to a document.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
