I changed my language in InDesign to English by using this method:
However, this changed everything. Now I can't even click into "book mode" which used to show at the upper right. Could someone help me make things look normal again?
You have to choose your Workspace and Short cuts again. Just gonto Workspaces in the right upper cornervand choose you desired one, then choose Edit - Short Cuts and assign the desired set.
Well I can of course click "new workspace" but the problem is that everything is gone so I'm quite handicapped here.
The drop down menu at the top right does no longer show a "book" option and tools etc are gone.
Maybe by changing the language I also deleted the preset workspaces that comes with InDesign.
Seems like quite a bad software design to make it this much of a hassle to simply change the language.
Then reinstall first. Then RENAME the existing folders so that files inside the folders are kept 😉
I reinstalled now with settings changed and without any changes again to the folder. And everything seems to be up and running now. Thanks for your inputs, Frans.

Yes, you are right here. InDesign software makers still not add this feature.
For example - Quark, CorelDraw, Affinity Publisher do this on the fly by many-many years. For InDesign creators this is SO BIG problem! [angry devil smile]
Don't change language by any tricks. You're need to reinstall your InDesign to have back all the things.
