Why does it ask me to save when no changes were made?

Opening an ID file, making no changes, then closing it - it always asks me if I want to save changes.

Why is it doing this even though I've made no changes, just simply looked at the file???

Also, if a file created/saved using an older version of InDesign is opened then it is converted and then needs to be saved.

It could be because a few things are checked and updated like: fonts located in the cloud, links to files (images, docs, pdfs...).

Can you test this with a simple file using a bit of text, unformatted?

OK, I made a file with one word typed out and it doesn't ask me if I want to save it, whenever I open/close it.

Why did you have the file open? Maybe that would help us answer the question better.

The correct answer is above: it does this behaviour only on older ID files.
