I am using Adobe InDesign 2022 (vesion 17.0 x64) with Windows 10 Pro (version 21H1). The problem I am havings is that sometimes when I launch the software all the panels are missing. See the screen shot below for details.
It should look like this
If I lauch the software from the Windows Start menu and then open a file, the panels will show up. But if I use the shortcut of double-clicking on the file to both launch the software and open the file, the panels are missing.
Any thoughts on how to fix this?
Looks like it might be in presentation mode. Press the Tab key and it should go back to normal.
Just tried it, it didnt work. It will show the panels if I manually choose a workspace from the Window menu. Also, this only happens when I take the short-cut of launching InDesign by double-clicking on the file so that InDesign opens to the file.
OK, try resetting the workspace from the Window menu
I just tried. I does not give me the option to reset the workspace. See pic below
I have to manually choose a workspace before it will let me reset it. When I launch InDesign first, then use it to open a file, it automatically opens my workspace.
Also, this problem isnt tied to just one file; it happens on all my InDesign files. The problem began after the last InDesign update.
That took care of it.
Glad to hear it.
