18.1 Workspace resets to 'essentials'
I'm working with Indesign 18.1 (issue also has occured with other older versions).
My custom workspace utilizes a two-screen setup, one screen for the actual layout and the other screen for all the menus/palettes etc.
Everytime I close out of a document and reopen a new document, the custom workspace resets from my custom workspace to a generic one-screen workspace. In previous versions, that reverted workspace was 'essentials' but with 1.81 it seems to be a partially custom / nondescript workspace....most likely because I went and deleted the 'essentials' workspace here:
/Applications/Adobe InDesign 2023/Presets/InDesign_Workspaces
I am working with a lot of different files everyday so this constant "reset, reapply the workspace" process is a real chore.
I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the app, I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling/updating to the current version from an older version also.
This has been around for quite some time now. Is it really that hard to fix?
It really slows down your workflow when you have to keep resetting it every time you open a file.

Same here. Driving me nuts. Please fix ASAP. Also can't disable home screen. This upgrade is epic fail for the quality control department.

Similar thing is happening to me when I load Indesign Illustrator or Photoshop now all my pallets are gone even clicking on my workspace doesn't bring them back I have to select another workspace, then select mine to get them on.
I am so tired of the constant bugs. It's literally something every single day.
