Just bought new mac, when using InDesign the screen keeps flashing black when I move objects.
What version of InDesign? What version of OS X?
Newest version of InDesign OS is 10.11 (i have an iMac with new 4K display)
Unticked "Automatically hide and show menu bar" in El Capitan System Preferences under the General Tab.
Nope that's already unchecked for me... This is only happening in InDesign when I move objects, so i tried unplugging my second monitor and it stopped, as soon as I plugged it back in it started again... Is this something I can fix in a display setting?
I also noticed my tools are not working properly when I move them over to my second monitor...
My coworker and I are having this problem as well. We just purchased iMacs last week, and it seems to only happen when a secondary display is set up?
I too am having this problem just purchased a Retina iMac last week when in indesign with a second monitor any movement in indesign causes my screen to go black. As above the problem does not happen when I disconnect the second monitor. Come on Adobe can you sort a fix out for this it is driving me crazy!
Version of InDesign? Operating system version?
Adobe Indesign CC 2015.2 release Mac Retina iMac Late 2015 OSX 10.11.2
This morning I did a complete re-install of indesign and deleted all my preferences and then installed again and it still has the same fault
No problems in other applications?
It's beginning to sound like a bug.
No problems in other Adobe software or any other software just isolated to indesign.
Same problem here any luck with a fix?
Hi unfortunately much to my disappointment this has still not been fixed! If you find a fix please share this has been so annoying for me as most of my working time is on indesign.
I just bought a 21.5" 3.1ghz 4k iMac. Freshly installed every from scratch... InDesign flashes black constantly when moving objects, not every time but probably every third time I move something.
Any solutions yet??? Very frustrated!!!!!
No fix yet please let me know if you find one!
Have you checked for updated video drivers?
As reported in post #4, it may be a bug related to a second monitor. It would be helpful if those who posted can provide more information about their system configuration to confirm that it may be a new bug.
OS X 10.11.2
iMac Retina 4K, 21,5'', late 2015
Adobe InDesign CC
Is this only happening when you plug in a second monitor?
yes, only with the second monitor. but if the indesign screen is on the second monitor it's not flashing black. it's only happening on the iMac retina monitor
As I said above, I suspect that it's a El Capitan and InDesign CC bug that hasn't yet been fixed.
More info on my system if it helps at all with the bug.
iMac (Retina 4k, 21.5-inch, Late 2015)
Running OS X El Capitan 10.11.1
Processor 3.1GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB Ram
Second monitor: Dell U2412m VGA with Mini Display adapter (I have a Display Port – Mini Display cable arriving soon to test)
I've tried both InDesign CC 2014 & CC 2015, when I move objects with a mouse in InDesign the iMac monitor flashes black every 2nd or 3rd time when I release the mouse button. Tonight I unplugged the monitor and am working in CC 2014 and it is much better though still flashes every now and then, probably every few minutes again after moving an object.
I haven't tried InDesign on the second monitor at this stage.
