4. Clear your cache: Clearing your cache can help resolve issues with design ideas not showing up. To clear your cache, go to File > Options > Advanced. Under the “Display” section, click on “Empty AutoRecover folder” and “Empty Temporary Internet Files folder.”

5. Disable add-ins: Add-ins can sometimes interfere with the functionality of design ideas. To disable add-ins, go to File > Options > Add-ins. Select “COM Add-ins” from the Manage drop-down menu and click “Go.” Uncheck any add-ins that may be causing issues and click “OK.”
