Hi, i have tried resetting my space but i can't fix this. i moved my indesign to the corner and now i can't  get my cursor to the header of the application frame to move it back so its visible

If i turn off application frame it looks fine, as in it snaps to my monitor:

Hey Jonathan:

 

Hold the Opt key and drag the bottom up. Like other Adobe objects, this will force the window to resize from the center and the top should come back into view.

Hi Jonathan,

do you have a backup of your InDesign preferences folder named Version 17.0 ?

Try to restore it from a backup you did perhaps today or yesterday with TimeMachine.

Do that when InDesign is not running. That should fix the issue.

 

The path of that folder usually is:

Users > [ Your user name ] > Library > Preferences > Adobe InDesign > Version 17.0

Uwe Laubender

Definitely something that is working on MacOS only, I think.

Thanks for the hint, Barb!

Yes, it's a Mac thing. On Windows I use a keyboard shortcut: Alt+Spacebar, m (for move) and the down arrow key. How do I know these things? Because I have made every mistake possible, multiple times. 🙄
