Hey There! 

 

I am having an issue with accessing an indesign file. I'm hoping I didn't delete the file by mistake when I closed indesign. I've spent too many hours doing this project for me to lose the progress.

 

Here's the issue:

 

The file is showing up in my "most recent" files,  however it is not opening up because its saying 
"Either the file does not exsist, you do not have permission, or the file may be in use by another application".

 

As you'll see (in the photo attached here) when I try to right click to look at where the file is stored it says the following:

 

Macintosh HD/Users/ryanlewis/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs/.Trash/Offsite_Brand_Guidelines.indd

 

Does this mean that it has been deleteded somehow and that I've put in the trash. Or does this meant that there is a folder somewhere called trash that I can acess and somehow get the file back?

 

I know sometimes I get this error message when icloud hasn't downloaded the file, but I can't find the undownloaded version anywhere in my finder anywhere.

 

Thank you in advance for your help and assistance. 🙂 

 

Also please let me know if you need any other information. I'm working on the most up to date indesign and OS.

This has been discussed before and I think it has to do with the fact that file is not fully synced to the local harddrive. If iCloud has an option to keep those files local, make sure you use it.
