I switched InDesign from English-only to English-Hebrew. (Mind you, I just want to set one line of text in right-to-left direction.) After installing this version, I discovered that my workspace is gone. How do I recover it? Is it lost just to this verison of InDesign? Or is it gone entirely, such that it won’t be available if I switch back to English-only?
Mac or Windows? Workspaces are stored on your hard drive, and you should be able to just copy the folder from your en_US folder to the new ME-language folder on your hard drive. Note that the workspaces on both platforms are in hidden folders (Library and AppData) so you will have to show those.
Here's my v15 folder location on my Mac, with my custom workspaces:

Hi Barb. Thanks for responding. This is on Mac.
I followed the path you provided above and found the workspace XML files. What a relief! Good to know how these are stored.
I copied my beloved workspace and I can get back to work. Thanks again!
So glad you got it figured out!
I work with custom Workspaces, custom Find/Change Queries and custom Style Mapping, so regularly have to port them over to the next version. Save that path!
Hi Barb, I have the same issue after a fresh install of all creative suite applications. I've searched 'Workspaces' in the location you mentioned but only found empty folders. I know I saved them but I cannot find and resore them.
