Yesterday afternoon InDesign crashed on launch and I have been unable to get it to launch since.

So far I have taken the following steps:

  • I have deleted the preferences cache and restarted.
  • I have updated to InDesign CC 2017
  • I have uninstalled and reinstalled InDesign
  • I have signed out of Creative Cloud and signed back in again
  • I have been through my fonts menu and cleared that out
  • I have started in 'safe mode'
  • I have logged in as another user

I am running an iMac on OS X El Capitan on version 10.11.6

Any help or suggestions on how to get me back up and running would be greatly appreciated!

This was my issue too. Tried everything else, turns out it was just some trial fonts I had recently downloaded. Deactivating them solved the issue.

Bonjour, 

In Ddsign plante au démarrage. J’ai désinstallé, réinstallé, supprimé les préférences, les caches, etc. Toutes mes appli sont à jour, et je suis sur MacOS Monterey. Que puis-je faire ? 

 

 

Merci 

 

Anne
