    Hey, what about this one!


    When opening files from a newer version of InDesign, non-meaningful errors about missing plug-ins are shown rather than a clear indication that the file is from a newer version. [2944763]*


    This needs to be retro-fixed for all existing versions, all the way back to InDesign 1.0!


    It's unimaginable this particular issue had to persist for more than a decade, leading to frustration and bewilderment of literally thousands of users, and hundreds upon hundreds of posts in this forum alone.

    That would be nice, but realistically it's not likely to happen, and wouldn't you rather they fixed something more important that's still broken, like footnote imporvemnets, or wonky Word import? Bad error messages will become self-limiting as time goes on.

    Hah -- perhaps all it does is run my Javascript before opening a file ...
