Indesign file re-open causes freeze/hang - but not on other Macs in the studio

Hi,
I'm running Leopard 10.5.6 and Indesign CS3 5.0.4, as are the other 4 Macs in our studio.
I created a document on my machine, saved it to the network and have now come to edit it again; the machine freezes every time now when I try to open the file.
The file opens perfectly on any of the other machines in the studio. I have tried resaving, copying/pasting content to a new document, saving as an Exchange format and nothing seems to work.
I've run Onyx system tools, cleanded the caches etc, even verified Hard disk and Permissions using Mac OS installer CD.
All other indesign files I have tried to open using my Mac are fine, open with no problems.
Does anyone have any idea what's going on here? I can post the report Mac OS generates if that would help anyone.
Thanks in advance,
Roland Kasicki

quicktime is a program not a format
even .mov is not a format but a container which can contain a vide range of formats
the core of your problem is finding out what the format of your files are
and if they are on the list of supported formats
if they are not you will have to convert your media

converting them should not reduce quality at all

  • Illustrator files will open on originating computer, but not on networked computers

    I have a small creative dept who uses Illustrator CS5.1 v15.1.0. Each system has its own registered version of software.
    Computer one will create a file, save it and can open it fine. However, computer 2 and computer 3 can not open the file. We can see it on the network drive, but the error we get is "the file is not readable."
    Troubleshooting that's already happened:
         • It's not a permissions issue, that I know of. "Get Info" shows the ability to read and write all of the same files.
         • The files are saved using the same settings in the "save" menu as are used on the other 2 systems
         • All systems are running the same system software
         • All files are saved on a network drive, and normally opened from there, but even if the file is copied locally, it still will not open.
    Computer 2 and Computer 3 can share and open files just fine.
    Thoughts?

    From point 4 (my emphasis):

    So it does not sound like the old network bugaboo. And it sounds like you've tried multiple files.
    For lack of a better idea, have you tried resetting preferences on computer one?

    1) Close the program and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (not reversible)
    or

  • Bash script running on my MBP 10.7.4 but not on other Macs (all 10.7.4)

    A friend of mine wrote me this short script to run in terminal that downloads a particular file every n seconds from a password protectected FTP site. The script worked on his linux machine and on my Mac but not on my collegues Macs. I'm wondering if anybody knows reasons why it may be failing on other Macs.
    We changing the first line from: #!/bin/sh to #!/bin/bash
    and exceuting with
    user_prompt_$ bash ./download_stats.sh
    Another idea is to script cyberduck but it doesn't support applescript though may have a comand line interface (looking into that at present).
    There error output from one of the accounts it fails on follows the script listing.

  • QuickTime need codec to play avi on MacBook Pro retinal display but not on other Mac's with Mountain Lion?

    Why will avi play on all my Mac's with Mountain Lion but not on my Retinal Display 13" Macbook Pro? Quicktime players are the same, OS are the same plugins are the same and up to date. Get the missing Codec warning only on retinal display.

    You don't say if your MacBook Pro is the new version that supports USB 3, if not the card reader will default to USB 2. The Ultra II is listed as 10Mb/s on old cards and 15MB/s on new cards, both within USB 2 specification. Extreme III are listed as 20MB/s old cards and 30MB/s new. These 30 MB/s maybe a bit too much for USB 2, not sure. see http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1111
    If the Macbook Pro as USB 3 support it could be that it does not recognise the card reader as USB 3 and default to USB 2.
    See Apple URL http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5172?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US
    Bullet point 11 may help.
    Of course the card reader could be faulty and not read the Extreme III cards unless you have verified it working in other situations.

  • File Left Open in Excel 2010 but not in Excel 2013 but Why?

       
    Hi All,
    After running the four lines of code below, if I try to open the 'MyFile.XLSX' in the windows Explorer I get a message saying  'File in use by 'another user'. However if I try to reference the file in Excel via VBA it is clearly not accessible (and
    shouldn't be). So why after copying all worksheets to another workbook is it still ready only?
    Is there a way of ensuring the file is writeable once again via VBA (since the object can not be referenced any longer?)
    Thanks in advance of any enlightenment
    Steve 
    Dim pmWkBk as Workbook
    Set pmWkBk = GetObject(Workbooks("MyFile.XLSX"))
    pmWkBk.Sheets.Move After:=Workbooks("MyOtherFile.XLSX").Worksheets("Sheet1")
    Set pmWkBk = Nothing
    Steve Stretch

    So, 'the original workbook no longer exists in the Excel object model'.  I don't think that's possible.
    It is 100% possible because once all the sheets of a workbook have been MOVED to anther workbook the original workbook doest;t exist. try it yourself...code
    below was recorded and the last line added.
    Cheers
    Sub Macro1()

        Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\Users\Win7\Desktop\Hello.xlsx"
        Sheets("Hello").Select
        Sheets("Hello").Move Before:=Workbooks("Goodbye.xlsx").Sheets(1)
        'then the bit you say is impossible - this is where you would get a subscript out of range error

  • I want multiple Firefox windows open w/different View settings - toolbars displayed in one, not in other. With the new version, I can no longer do that ?

    I want to remove the toolbars in one open instance of Firefox but not in others.......this was possible in the prior version. Now if I change the settings in one instance, it automatically changes in the other open Firefox windows. How I can I make this work as it did before the upgrade? Thanks, Kris

    Thanks a million! It was not intuitive to "swipe" the open applications up but it works perfectly!!
    Thank you

  • InDesign files are opening in InCopy

    Hi there,
    Why is it that every time I click on an InDesign file it opens in InCopy?  I am a magazine designer so understand the purpose of InCopy. I have it on my computer only for emergencies with editors. But, these files were never put into InCopy nor do they have anything to do with InCopy. But when I click on an .indd file, InCopy opens and up pops my file.
    My particulars:
    CS3
    OS 10.6.6
    iMac Intel Core i3
    Any advice or solutions would be appreciated. This is a mystery (and kind of annoying).
    Cathy Krizik

    Bob,
    Finally getting back to this. Thanks so much.
    When I do a right click I see that I can open the file in either incopy or indesign and I see that InCopy is the default. I want InDesign to be the default always. How do i change the default program?

  • I have two companies sending me indesign documents. One opens up and the dictionary is set to English. The other file opens at is in Hebrew, Not sure how to fix the Hebrew part and whether or not the fualt lies at my end or at the other end

    I have two companies sending me indesign documents. One opens up and the dictionary is set to English. The other file opens at is in Hebrew, Not sure how to fix the Hebrew part and whether or not the fault lies at my end or at the other end

    If only the language is Hebrew, you should correct it in the Paragraph and Character Styles.
    But in such a case I would expect more problems.
    If you are a creative cloud subscriber you should additionally install the InDesign version, English with Hebrew support:
    Go to the preferences of you CC.app. It is found behind the Gear Symbols on the top right.
    When the preferences open, go to the Apps section.
    Change the App Language to English with Hebrew support.
    Now you can install it. It will install on the very same place where your InDesign program is found some additional plugins, which will give you access to Hebrew functionality, like RTL text. Otherwise you will inherit in the document (and where you copy and paste it from such a document into another one). But now you can change or repair problems.
    Now repeatstep 1 + 2, but you need not to install your own language again. InDesign will now, when started, run in the language of your OS (when you have it installed in that language) but with more functionality to handle problems with Hebrew documents.
    The same steps you would have to do with Arabic or Asian documents. These languages will also add more plugins. But keep it limitted to those language you need. I have installed it that way, because I get sometime documen where the text flows the wrong direction or the numbers come up in Farsi digit, not in Arabic digits. For such purposes I need versions in languages I don’t understand myself.

    i have a website which opens only with google, but not google from safari. how i can get google w/o using safari?

    From the Safari menu bar, select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    Turn all extensions OFF and test. If the problem is resolved, turn extensions back ON and then disable them one or a few at a time until you find the culprit.
    If you wish, you may be able to salvage the errant extension by uninstalling and reinstalling it. Its settings will revert to their defaults. If the extension still causes a problem, remove it permanently or refer to its developer for support.

  • I need to delete files from my iMac hard drive, but not from my other devices (that are sync. to iCloud). How do I do this?? My Mac is a 24-inch Mid 2007 running on Mountain Lion. Thanks for your help.

    I have recently recieved messages indicating that my start up disc is almost full. Consequently I need to remove some files from my hard drive. I've backed up my hard drive onto a NAS system & onto an external harddrive. The problem now, is that whenever I try to delete a file, a message comes up saying that if I remove this file from my hard disc it will remove it from all my other devices that are syn. to it. How do I remove a file (movies) from my iMac but not from other devices.
    Thanks for your help
    Robert

    You're right - this question has nothing to do with iSync!
    You're best bet would be to buy yourself an external Firewire or USB 2.0 hard-disk. There's no way you'll get 150gb onto an 80gb drive - certainly not in an instantly accessible way.
    Your new Mac would've had the Migration Assistant appear during the initial OS install. This allows you to connect your new and old Mac together via a Firewire cable and automatically transfer your important files from old Mac to new.
    Once you've all the files off your old Mac, re-format it and re-install the OS that came with it. If you boot up the Mac from the OS install DVD, there is an option to re-format the HD and install the OS.
