I lost all Save, Save As, Undo functionality (everything is grayed out). To save my work, I have to export as an IDML .
InDesign has been broken for years now. What is going on?
The bug below is more than a bug:
"I lost all Save, Save As, Undo functionality (everything is grayed out). To save my work, I have to export as an IDML ."
It should not be "closed" it should be "open".
it happened again this morning.
I had the exact same issue this morning.
I save automatically using quick keys (Cmnd S) every few changes so didn't realise that after 7.5 hrs of work my InDesign file wasn't actually saving. I was unable to Save, Save As or Save a copy, all options were greyed out and not selectable in the File menu.
I was working on a pretty basic InDesign file (mostly text and tables) using the latest InDesign CC 2019 version 14.03.3 running from my hard drive on macOS Mojave version 10.14.6 running on an iMac Pro (2017). I understand the software had updated to the latest version automatically that morning.
I was also unable to package the file (an alert advised the file could not be saved). Luckily I was able to export a PDF, but didn't think to export as an IDML before the program spontaneously Quit itself and I lost 7.5hrs work.
I have had CC for less than a month after being forced to upgrade to a subscription from my trusty CS6 which worked fine on my previous iMac but is no longer supported on the updated iMac Pro.
Such a huge 'bug' to have in your software Adobe given how expensive subscriptions are and how sole traders like me rely on the software for our income. This is a massive stuff-up yet I see you have closed the previous thread related to this. This should be being investigated and addressed so others don't lose hours of work.
