I recently bought the M1 Macbook Pro and every time I try to use InDesign it freezes and I have to shut down my laptop using the power button. I have the most up to date Mac OS Big Sur 11.2.3 and InDesign 16.1.

 

I have tried to search for the 'Beta' version in my drop down (like the link suggets) but it is nowhere to be seen and there is no button to click. I am using creative cloud through my University, could this be the problem? I have lots of univeristy work to do and having a bit of a panic, please can you offer advice?

 

Thank you very much in advance!

Hello Frans,

 

Thank you for your response. I have read the link again, tried logging out and logging back in and still no change.

The 'BETA' option is not available and not appearing in the drop down, like the link shows it. 

Is this a problem because I am using Creative Cloud through my University perhaps?

Who's log-in are you using—the University's or your own? If it is the University's then it would certainly make sense that applying to be a beta tester would not work.
