Hi there, 

I've never written on a forum. So I don't really know how this goes. But I'm about to lose my mind with InDesign. 

I deleted previous versions to clear up space on my computer. Now all my previous projects are converted to PDF's. 

 

So I reinstalled a previous version. Didn't seem to help. Now every project that I save, in both the 2020 and the 2021 version, saves as a PDF file. Eventhough I specifically select to save as a INDD file. 

 

And if I try to open them in Acrobat DC, since it's supposed to be a PDF file, it says that it won't support this type of file or that it's damaged. Even projects that I started in InDesign 2021 won't save as a INDD file. 

 

Really don't know what to do. I hope somebody can help me. Cause Adobe Help Center can't.

This has been reported multiple times. You need to a)show file extensions in either Finder or File Explorer and then change the INDD file association back to InDesign.

This is a well know file association problem.
