Hi! I just changed to Mac Big Sur, and now my InDesign files are not opening correctly. On the main work area images and text are missing. But if you look on the page panel, the layouts look fine. Anyone have any ideas on fixing this? Thanks!

What version of InDesign?

 

Did you choose View > Fit Spread in Window?

 

What spread is active in the Pages panel?

Hi Barb: I have InDesign 2021. Seems the images are not linked possibly. However if you go to the links tab, the images are actually linked apparently. If I go and drag the images from their folder back into the image box, then the images will show up again. But my fear is I would have to do that with all my past files - which could be a big problem. Is it possible to go back to Mac OS Catalina?

thanks!

Yes, you can roll back your operating system.

Before you do that, can you share the Links panel when the file first opens? Before you manually relink the files?
