Indesign doesn't work after import of graphic file and changing the text flow

I tried to add a graphic file to my InDesign book project in which many other images are included ... now I'm at the point that I add another TIFF file (tried different) and wanted to change the text flow around the graphic. That's the point my InDesign doesn't work any more - it just shows the "hand" pointer and no entries at the menu or the buttons possible - I have to stop the program by hard end via my Mac tool.

 

I packed the old file into a new one, I splitted the pages into several files, I also disabled the preflight - the result is all the same.

 

So, I hope that the community or ADOBE may have a clue how I may continue my work. Actually it is trash if no solution is available.

 

Thank you very much

Markus Stein

 

P.S. I use Indesign 2024 from Creative Cloud on my iMac 2023 with 16 GB

Reinstalling rarely fixes everything - you can do a complete reinstall using the

Eugene,

 

thank you very much - that seems to work. I already re-installed the program before, also no result.

 

So hopefully your hint will work in the future.

 

Again THANK YOU 🙂

Markus
