Which version of InDesign and OS?

You normally create a new document: File > New > Document, you then enter the specifications and click OK.

Yep - I've been using it for years. For some reason today I can't create a new file. I have restarted my mac and ID and it still isn't working. The only thing I can do is open an existing file and edit that and save as a new file.
