Greetings, I'm on a Mac using InDesign , V16.1. I am experiencing what appears to be a bug or a conflict of some kind when I try to change the CMYK mix of a swatch. Instead of seeing the CMYK color amount controls, I see a Pantone Swatch listing that won't go away. Even when I select a color swatch that is NOT a Pantone color, the Pantone color book listing shows up, with some overlapping text. See attached. I've tried restarting InDesign the problem persists across all InDesign documents. See attached screen shot of what the Swatch Options window looks like.
I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the InDesign forum so that proper help can be offered.
Thanks. Where do I find this post in the InDesign forum? At the top of THIS page, it already says "Home > InDesign". I apologize for posting it here if it should have gone somewhere else. I'm just having a hard time trying to find the InDesign forum.
Duh...I'm already there. Sorry about that. I didn't realize this IS the post in it's correct location.
Panel problems usually are caused by corrupted a cache file. Try deleting or moving your InDesign Caches folder. On OSX it’s Users ▸ username ▸ Library ▸ Caches ▸ Adobe InDesign ▸ Version X
Thanks for the reply. I tried this but it didn't work. I'm still getting the garbled text on the Swatch options window. It appears that the Pantone list and the CMYK sliders are appearing at the same time. I was also told that this should have been posted on the InDesign forum. I thought that's what I did. If this post is also there, I may have missed some replies there. Can someone provide a link to this post as it is shown on the InDesign forum?
Did you restart ID after deleting the Caches folder? If a retart did not work try trashing your preferences.
What do you mean by "Restart ID"? Restart my Mac?
One more question: Which preferences do I trash? Is there one Adobe preferences file? or one Adobe InDesign Preferences file?
Delete or move the Caches ▸ Adobe InDesign ▸ Version 16.0 folder then restart InDesign.
The Prefs folder is here:
Users ▸ username ▸ Library ▸ Preferences ▸ Adobe InDesign ▸ Version 16.0
OK...I tried this:
Re-create Damaged Preference Files:
1. Quit InDesign, then relaunch the application and immediately hold down the following key combinations for your OS:
• Mac OS X: CTL+OPT+CMD+Shift
This appears to have worked.
