A client supplied an IDML file created in CS5.5 which I opened it in CS5. I created a paragraph style, applied it and the font colour was different than the one I had specified. Just to be sure, I checked all the specs. I applied the default basic para style to clear the problem and re-applyed my style but that didn't sort out the problem. This is only one of the issues I've run into recently with IDML files. Does anyone have other stories? What did you do to fix it (short of upgrading to CS 5.5 - LOL!)?
thanks, good suggestion - no alias. As well, I originated the para style so need to check with client.
update: I dug a bit deeper and discovered <blush> the problem was as simple as character styles overriding my paragraph styles. Yes, I am a trained professional. LOL
However.... I have found IDML files created in CS5.5 glitchy - really, I have.
I'm assuming from the very first post that CS5 cannot open CS5.5 ID files. Is that correct? Got two ID files yesterday and I can't open either one and I have CS5. I won't rehash the arguments for and against the ability to open ID files other than to say it's frustrating to own ID and not be able to open any ID file.
