Why do I get SharedContent plugin error?

Jul 11, 2012 6:23 AM

My indd document was created in iD CS5.5. On opening in iD CS5, there is a popup which says that SharedContent plugin was used in the creation of the file. The popup then provides the option to proceed anyway. Will I be safe doing that, or is there a workflow for installing the plugin in CS5?

    You cannot open an InDesign CS5.5 file directly in InDesign CS5. You need to choose File > Export > IDML and open the IDML file in InDesign CS4 or CS5.

    Steve left out the part where that export must be done from CS5.5.

    Is there another way around this? CS5.5 is on a Mac that I do not currently have access to.

    You should be good to go.

    Hi Bob,

     

    I have the exact same problem. Would you be able to help me?

     

    I have uploaded the file to this link. http://cl.ly/0Y0M223u1q3U303w1y1z

     

    I think I saved it in CS5.5 and now I'm trying to open it in CS5.

     

    Thanks a million,

    Rory

    Sorry, still without power since Irene ripped through here due to the utter incompetence of JCP&L. Very limited internet.

     

    If I get to Dunkin Donuts later I'll look at it. In the mean time perhaps someone else will come along and help you out.

    Bob,

     

    I am wondering if you can help me convert as well?

     

    I have 5 at work and downloaded 5.5 at home last night not thinking anything about it.

     

    Thank you very much!

    I didn't bring my laptop from home to work. So I don't have access to 5.5...

    Didn't think ahead I guess.

     

    But thank you for the heads-up!

    Please visit my website, www.theindesignguy.com and go to the contact page there. Send me a message with your email address and I'll email it to you.

     

    And for the lurkers out there...Unless you're willing to visit this page first: www.theindesignguy.com/donate.shtml, please stick to messages here in the forum. I'm getting way too many emails asking for help. I'll get to the ones here when I have time or perhaps someone else will be able to assist.

    Hi Bob,

     

    I am experiencing this problem as well. The file at issue is quite large - my portfolio - which I modified at school, then brought home only to find that I could no longer open it. Could you help me out with this as well?

     

    Thanks,

     

    Ben

    I wish i didn't have to ask, but please check your PM. Why doesn't Adobe make the newer versions backwards compatible?

    Hi Bob and Everyone Else,

     

    I saw your really helpful post on the Adobe Forum about an InDesign file that won't open in CS5 due to missing plug ins, or maybe the original was created in InDesign CS5.5, we don't know.

     

    I am trying to help a journalism student with his project (exam is Monday) and when I try to open his InDesign file I get the following messages:

     

    This document users one or more plug-ins which are not currently available on your system: SharedContent.InDesignPlugin

     

    and when I continue, a second alert lists the following missing plug-ins:

     

    FormField.InDesignPlugin

    XML.InDesignPlugin

    Generic Page Item.InDesignPlugin

    Text.InDesignPlugin

    Dynamic Documents.InDesignPlugin

    Hyperlinks.InDesignPlugin

    Document Framework.InDesignPlugin

    Graphics.InDesignPlugin

     

    and it says: Please upgrade your plug-ins to their latest versions, or upgrade to the latest version of Adobe InDesign.

     

    I cannot see anywhere to upgrade my plug-ins, and cannot afford to upgrade from CS5.

     

    So does this mean the original document was created in INDD CS5.5?

     

    Or can I download the relevant plug-ins from somewhere?

     

    Or can you someone very kindly convert it to CS5 for me please? I do have a dropbox.

     

    Many thanks

     

     

    Sarah

    Thank you so much Peter, but Bob has very kindly helped us already. What a brilliant guy!

     

    I would have removed my post, but I cannot see how to do that here.

     

    Best wishes, and thanks again. Lovely people.

    I also have an InDesign CS5.5 file that I need to be able to open in CS4. I was working at home one day without my laptop from work and downloaded the trial version of CS5.5, and now I can not open the file that I created. The file is located in my dropbox at the following link:
