Indesign CS4/ InCopy issue

Hi, I have a question regarding an issue I am having.


I'm currently working on a book and I have the chapters saved as multiple indesign files (one file per chapter) they are set up for editing in InCopy as well. There have been changes inserted into InCopy from an external source and I have re styled the changes in InDesign CS4 (overset text, font issues, layout changes, etc) and saved them. The files haven't been touched in a week and when I go to open them now none of the changes I have made are there. I've checked the stories folder and for a few chapters there seem to be a conflicted copy of some of the icml files. I am just curious if anyone has experienced a similar issue and if it is possible to avoid having to go back and make all the changes again.

    Hi, it sounds like you might have either not saved the changes that you made, or that you saved a vision of your work that InDesign is not linking to.


    Have you made sure to update the links inside of InDesign?
