Hi everyone! I am training my team in InDesign and I was hoping to export a custom workspace so they can have everything automatically ready to go. Is there a way to export a cutsom workspace and share to other users/computers? Thank you!

Each application version has a folder structure where its working support files are stored.

 

Example: You take the custom workspace file from Version 15 folder (InDesign 2020) and copy it into the equivalent path in the Version 16 (InDesign 2021) folder. It will then appear as a custom workspace in the new version.
