Lost all Save, Save As, Undo functionality while working.
To save my work, the only thing to do is to export as an IDML file. Force quitting to recover the file doesn't work. This has been happening to me since InDesign 5.5. I am currently using InDesign CC 2018. There are no particular steps, it happens at random. I can have several files open and it only happens to one file, or sometimes it's more than one file. It happens whether I'm working off of my Desktop or on our server.
If you are still experiencing this issue (as some of you are), please respond to the email that has been sent to you.
While the issue has been fixed for certain scenarios, it looks like there are some remaining where it is still NOT working as expected. We look forward to finding a complete fix for this issue.

This started for me today as well- getting very very anxious as my job depends on it....
Same happened to me today. I really don't know what to do.
Just experienced the same scenario. Can't undo or save. Re-starting the program fixed it for now.

I cannot save, undo and most edit functions aren't working. Just started today.
It just happened to me. I spent 3 hours updating a file, always saving before I print. Undos stopped working. Saving before closing wouldn't work. The program simply said "InDesign cannot save." It just started happening today.
I see admin comment to fix this with " please respond to email that has been sent to you" but never received email.
This issue just started. I finally switched to CC after years of CS5 and it was fine for the past month until now. I am on Mojave OS. The only new thing I've done in the last week is update the apps...hmm. It also won't let me go back to a prior edit (control Z on mac) which is hugely annoying.
I've also been having issues with the save, save as and undo functions. It happens on selective documents.
So far I've been able to save as an IDML, restart InDesign and the functions appear again, but it would be nice if I didn't have to do this.
can't save my work or undo
I also can't save my work!!!!!

Since running the latest update, randomly I can't save, save as, copy or paste. Been working on a document for over an hour hitting cmd-s regularly thoroughout without realising it wasn't actually working.
From this thread it looks like I'm not the only one this is happening to and is a MASSIVE issue.
actually, i can't save either
having this same problem. in the middle of working on a project and suddenly no undos

Now we have an improved version of this - I can't even export to idml!!
