Adobe InDesign with network home folders
I have another Mac problem! We have a machine with InDesign CS3 installed on Mac OS 10.5.5. The user used to have a portable home folder, but the benefits were outweighed by the number of sync errors she received, so she has been switched back to network homes. A result of this is that Adobe InDesign stops working. It gives an error that it can't find ROMAN.TXT, which lives in /Library/App Support/Adobe..... and that the software needs reinstalling. I have tried this to no avail. Some other web users have posted on forums with the same problem but I can't find any answers.
I've made sure she has read and write permission to the folders in question, and, the file is there.
Any ideas? I'd like to keep her on network homes if possible, but if there is no work around I will have to move her to portable or local homes
Thanks again guys!

Strange one, just had a look at my machine and couldn't even find the file...
This thread seems to suggest it is a server side permissions issue. I would try creating a new user on the server & see if the same problem occurs. If not, recreate her user and all should be ok (being careful not to destroy all her documents...)

is there not an issue with Adobe and network homes in general. it seems they don't support MS or apple's networked environments completely

I've checked through the perms, and reset them, even to global RW for testing to no avail. Someone also suggested checking permissions to the user's Caches folder, but they were fine.
I'll probably end up setting the user back up as a local user as they need to get on with their day-job without my fiddling!
