InDes not launching
7.0.4. (CS5). I think it may be Font Explorer, as it's trying to hook up with Indesign (shoulda disabled it  :embarrassed: ), and FEX not launching either.
Have run applejack. Can do again. Scant info from Console.
Dump Prefs? Both apps.?  What's the key hold-down again David?   :cheesy: (or I'll move em to desktop...)

Key combo for Indy is CTRL+SHIFT+OPTION+COMMAND and start Indy. I don't think that works with FEX though.

Frailer, did the pref dump do any good?

do you have FEX set to auto load the fonts?

About to tackle, after some other 'issues' sorted...  :rolleyes:

I've dumped some fonts I had in the Indy Fonts folder. Can I dump that (dot)lst safely?

Done. Here's my next move. I think Indys an innocent by-stander. I don't have auto activation on, but I think (a dodgy/corrupted) FEX is trying to talk to it when you try and launch Indy. Stupid tripwire.
About to go to FEX site and see what updates are in place. Maybe an overwrite of the current one (I'm on paid version), will fix it. The don't call me Paulyanna for nothin'.

Just a 'cold' launch. I have a horrible feeling that it's a PICNIC problem. Been a bit slack on preventative maintenance, and thought "I know, I'll launch FEX, and run the Tools. I ran the 1st one, which I think is 'Clean System Fonts'... troubles started then, I think.
having said that, yesterday was a wrtched blur... I may be hallucinating. production getting in the way right now.
No sign of wonkiness anywhere else.
I did do a write-over of the a downloaded FEX 3.1. No dice. I'll have time to tinker this afternoon. There's always Indy on the other iMac. I consider myself overdue on such an event; so am philosophical.
Next trick is to uninstall FEX with AppCleaner. See if Indy will launch without  it there. If it does, I'll re-install from the DMG.

Progress. Moved FEX Plugin onto Desktop. Indy startup successful. I wonder if I can just not worry about it. Can still activate fonts if I need to, with FEX. Plugin not a prerequisite, correct?

Shall now uninstall FEX, install downloaded one. Shall make sure plugin not loaded for Indy.

I never load those plug ins, I just don't like it loading fonts I don't want to use.

I wonder if somehow he has a missing , or corrupt system font. Hey, Cap... how are your other apps running? IS this only specific to InDesign and FEX?
