Hello, thank you for your answer ... the first time this happened was about 6 weeks ago, working with Catalina. I hoped the issue will disapear with Big Sur (latest Version) but it did not. I am still facing the problem ... sometimes not when I am opening Indesign for the first time ... but later after working with various Indd Documents ... really strange

Just to be clear, though, Command-Z will always be greyed out until you've actually done something within the file to undo. Also when first opening a document you would expect to see that Command-Z is in grey. It would also get greyed out after the intial save of a document or after a "save as" of that document.

Hello Bill, thank you very much responding to my problem. Command-Z is not always greyed out ... it is working when I restart Indesign, but after some times its becoming greyed out again ... but not especially after saving the document, mainly before ... when the problem appeared the first times i couldn´t save the file, but this was under Catalina ... with Big Sur "save" or "save as" is working. Another information which might be interesting is that most of my Indesign Documents are stored in Lacie Hard Drive and I usally open them from here.

See if working on the documents on your computer's hard drive makes a difference.
