You want to trash the InDesign plist file, which will force ID to rebuild it. Keep in mind this will force you to reset all your preferences, so rather than actually deleting it, you may just want to move it to the desktop so you can put it back if you need to or want to.

If you know where to get to that, have at it. If not, read on.

The plist files you need are located in your library. From the GO menu in the main Finder window, press and hold the Option key and the Library option will magically apear. Click that and your user library will open in a new finder window.

Next open the Preferences folder and then look for a file called "com.adobe.InDesign.plist". That's the file you want to trash/move and force ID to recreate. Make sure you have ID closed while you do this.

If you have any version of Mac OSX prior to Lion you don't need to do the option thing, as they didn't hide it prior to 10.7.

This doesn't sound like a preference thing, but either way, this is always a good place to start to rule things out as your troubleshoot.
