All menus indicate that the window (document) is open, but it doesn't show. I can't see the toolbar on the right either, the one showing colors, layers etc. I haven't had this problem before.

I have Indesign 13.0.1 and Mac OS 10.13.2

I've tried to reset preferences and workspace, and I still can't see my workspace. I don't have China antivirus either.

Do you have some China antivirus? One of my contacts have it and InDesign don't start normally as

"All menus indicate that the window (document) is open, but it doesn't show".

If yes - delete this animal.

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner

Untrue, Im no professional but I find lots of stuff that indesign doesnt do because now its hinged to the internet and is buggy. My dad says he way preferred Quark, indesign was jst cheaper. Now its more expensive. Its the way of the world.
