I have the message in indesign show Missing required parameter 'from' for method 'open' each time I double click on any indesign file. At the same time I  use shotcut keys and would normally use apple+E for export files to pdf. I have not updated anything. Current Indesign is 15.1 and running MacOS Cataline 10.15.2.  I have searched everything and find no solution

Update: I've been able to narrow down the issue to files that I'm trying to open over a network. When the InDesign file is sitting on my actual computer, it opens by double-clicking on the file name/icon. If I do the same via the network - whether connected by ethernet or Wifi - I get the same error.

It's my own file and I'm only using Macs, both at work and at home. And still just one example of many occurencies like thses the past weeks. I could collect more data.

 

Most importantly, I think you missed one detail about the Swedish vowel. This was in the folders name, not the files name. Like this:

 

FOLDER USING Å (not working)

  Filenamn.indd

 

FOLDER USING A  (working)

  Filenamn.indd

 

FOLDER USING Å (changed back and now this works too)

  Filenamn.indd

I think I figured it out. In my case it was the german character ("ä") in one of my main folders which has never caused any problems in the past six years. However now I changed it and that fixed it.

I'm testing this now and the "foreign" characters looks suspicious. Same with the Swedish ä.

But what I found out is that only touching the files name will do. Doesn't matter whaich character I change but making a change will fix the problem somhow.

As read below, if I go to "Open..." in InDesign, then navigate to the indd file, seems to work fine.

Hi,

 

Thank you for confirming it works that way. Just in case if you're unable to open the file using the double click on macOS, please ensure you have provided InDesign full disc access. To do that, please go to Apple Menu > System Settings > Privacy & Security > Full disc access. Let us know if this helps or if you need further assistance.

 

Thanks

Rishabh

One first solution is to open files only from the File menu.
