Well . . . wha’da’ya’know . . . I disabled ‘work off-line’ capability for Google Drive and now Layout appears to be working. Not exactly counting chickens yet but this is a very very good sign! Fingers crossed! Thanks very much.
I know about the problem, and read what Adam wrote, and can see why you may be confused!
Literally, if you’re offered an update to LayOut, and you choose not to take it, LayOut could crash.
It shouldn’t affect you. If you check for an update for LayOut 2019, you’re told you have the latest version. The problem we’re seeing in LayOut 2022 shouldn’t apply.
Happy to read that “other Adam”'s suggestion helped.
