Google how to show hidden user library folders on your Mac. As the link says, they're in the Roaminig folder, but it is a hidden folder which the help file doesn't mention.

On a Mac, workspaces which are shipped with InDesign are stored in /Applications/Adobe InDesign 2023/Presets/InDesign_Workspaces.

Custom workspaces are are stored in /Users/username/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/Version 18.0/fr_FR*/Workspaces

 

*Note that fr_FR refers to the langage used in the UI. In my case, it's French.

The library folder is hidden by default on our Macs. Open Finder and open the Go menu to see a list of folders. Library will not be in the list until you hold the down the Opt key. Once visible, just click on Library and go forward from there. 

 

Also note they are under Version 18.0 even though we are running patched versions of 18 (18.4 or 18.5).

Hi @Barb Binder on my French version of Ventura, user libraries are now visible even if you don't should down the option key.

you probably have Show Library Folder already checked in your user folder's View Options?

They've always hidden most of the internal workings and dumbed things down to the point they can sell computers like TVs.

Hi Ronnie:

 

I understand your frustration—any instuctions that indicate how to locate InDesign's workspace folder should include a reference to the hidden files and folders and I'm sorry the one you found first did not.

 

This is neither an Adobe thing or just an Apple thing. Both Macs and Windows hide system files and folders as a default to protect them from an unknowing user who might delete required files and cause the application—or the computer—to suddenly stop working. 

 

And, as you have learned, the volunteers on this forum are very happy to answer InDesign questions. Please stop by again next time you need a hand.

I have the option on Windows to always show hidden folders/files - which I have on by default.
I don't think I've ever found that setting on Mac. 

I often find myself jumping through hoops on the Mac OS to do basic user settings.

@leo.r You are right, but I can swear that it was ticked by default. Did this option exist on previous system versions?

By @jmlevy

 

Yes this option has been there for quite some time... Don't remember exactly but I think since around El Capitan. It's unchecked by default on a clean system install.

 

I think it's possible you've just checked it years ago and never had to check it again as you kept updating your systems.
