I work off a network, and in the previous version I have had some issues after updating, for example, if I kept a pdf version selected of my work in the finder window, and I'm trying to save it, it will come up an alert telling me that I can't save that version because it is already open, (on the previous version even if I had it open it will automatically update it (LIVE). In the new 2021 update, if I open a version of my work from the finder window, if I do any editing and save it, my InDesign program will save it in the last work I was working on before, so If I need to save it in the right folder? I need to manually research the path to save it in the folder where it was previously open. (that's a pain in the butt cause sometimes I forgot and then I save it in the wrong folder. Is that happening to everyone who is working on a network?
I’m working in InDesign, on a Mac machine, with the latest version, all up to date, and working off a server.
So, my day of work with InDesign starts like this:
1.- I open a file, (Off any given file folder off the network) then, I start editing,
2.- After a few minutes of working (because that’s how I work) or even if I just hit command + save, (because I’m in a rush to get things done) and hit enter. (because I think InDesign will recognize the folder where the file it was pull from, (as before I updated my adobe programs to 2021), when I look/search for the file, the file is not in the folder I saved it, and opened from because now InDesign does not recognize the folder from where it was opened. Rather remembers the last folder where I saved the last document that has nothing to do with the new project).
So, now when I’m working I have to take the time to go in in design and look for the folder I opened the file from re-save the file even though there’s a version of that file already created, so it will ask me if I want to replace that document, ( I’m sorry but it is annoying to do things twice in a fast pace environment).
3.- So, to save the file that I have already opened from a server/network, I have to give the hole rot path again to get it save in the right file folder.
4.- Also, after I updated from 2019 to 2020 since then, when I have a pdf file selected in my finder window, and I try to save that file, it will give me an alert telling me that the file is already open. (And this is being going on since almost more than a year).
I Hope I explain my self correctly, but if you guys have any questions please let me know.
