Guides/Grids not showing
InDesign16.02 & 16.01
For some reason today, when I opened an InDesign file from a packaged InDesign folder in the latest version of InDesign, I could not view the page margins, document grid, baseline grid or ruler guides. I tried toggling them with the shortcuts and by directly selecting them from the InDesign menu. I uninstalled the latest version and tried the previous to make sure it wasn't a version issue. I had the same result. No grids or guides would show no matter what I tried. I checked the threshold and made sure I was within it which I was.
I tried opening another InDesign filed that had been packaged and I had the same result. I have tried this both on my iMac and my Macbook with the same result.
I was finally able to get the guides to show when I opened the IDML file from the packaged folder.
I believe this is a bug when opening packaged INDD files.

I am experiencing this on a new macbook, the .indd file is from a packaged job
