Which version of InDesign and OS?

Try resetting the InDesign preferences, see if that resolves the issue

Hi @M.Elgammal:

 

You are sharing a screenshot of the Essentials workspace. Have you actually saved the workspace using a new name via Window > Workspace > New Workspace?

 

Custom workspaces are saved by default in the Workspaces folder, shown below. Do you have permission to save into the Workspaces folder?

When you save a custom workspace, it doesn't matter if files are open, or not. I always teach my students to create them with an open document.

I was able to solve this for me by deleting the Essentials workspace and having Indesign recreate it. After I deleted I was able to use my custom workspace and not have it keep resetting to Essentials.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are facing. This is not typical behavior. I suggest you create a new user account (https://support.apple.com/en-in/guide/mac-help/mtusr001/mac) and run your CC apps there. Let us know if you see similar behavior there.

 

Regards,

Anshul Saini

Do you have Suitcase Fusion running? I had the issue fixed. Then I just updated Fusion, which installs new plugins. The issue returned. Removed the Suitcase auto-activation and the issue is fixed.
