Everytime I open a new document my InDesign toolbar disappears!
I know how to reopen the toolbar but why does it keep disappearing?
It could be that you have set it to no toolbar in a blank document . It will then become the default.
Open Indesign and go to window-tools to show the toolbar then close Indesign. The default will then show the toolbar.
Or, just reset the workspace:
Window > Workspace > Reset XXX (whichever workspace you are using).
Worked great!!! Thank you SO MUCH! Easy solution
Thank you so much - I thought I'd never find it again
waooh it works great
Awesome! PERFECT! Thank you, thank you, thank you SO MUCH!
Instead of resetting your entire workspace (especially if you have a custom one that hasn't been saved for some reason) the toolbars you're looking for are likely found by going to Window>Control for the top bar or Window>Tools for the side tool bar.
This is the good answer.
What BarBinder suggested doesn't fix anything and can even gove you more trouble by resetting your workspace then needing to replace everything like before.
It’s a best practice to save your custom workspace — then resetting it will not cause you to put it back to as it was before.
I’m curious, though, as to why you marked Barb’s answer as “abuse”?
Perfect answer, thanks!
