The preference and support files for InDesign have similar locations. These files are primarily grouped into three locations, though there is data in additional locations as noted below.
- The Application folder: At the location of the application, or executable, are subfolders for presets and other support files. These subfolders are typically where the "canned" presets are located.
- The application "roaming data folder." This folder is intended for "normal" preference data that you would want to roam from machine to machine in a roaming profile environment.
- The application "local cached data folder." This folder is designed for large data caches that you don't want to roam from machine to machine in a roaming profiles environment on Windows. It is also for data that can easily be regenerated if deleted.
