    I'm working in Windows 10, Adobe InDesign version 16. I only recently updated to this version and it is unusable. At first it allowed me to open an *.indd file, but then refused to open another until I rebooted. I did this multiple times with a group of files that I need to complete. After a day of this, now InDesign 16 crashes without ever opening whether I try to open it on its own or through clicking on an *.indd file. I then removed it and installed version 15.1.3, but when I attempt to open my files, it says they were modified with v16 and it has to convert them to an older version. I click Convert, and it just sits there and never resolves. I am truly screwed in that I cannot open my files in either version now. I have found numerous complaints online about this very issue, but Adobe continues to put this update on Creative Cloud and encourages users to download it. We need real solutions now.
