I just came accross a serious bug after opening an IDML file from InDesign CS4 v6.0.6 in CS6 v8.0.0.
Objects of a master page "B" that is based on master "A" were moved!
Watch out especially for page 4.
Here a screen grab of the pages palette of InDesign CS4:
Here a screen grab after opening the IDML in InDesign CS6:
The two objects on master "B" are moved by an amount of about half the page width!
Here the link to the IDML file from InDesign CS4:
This seems to be a serious bug.
Instead opening the InDesign CS4 file in InDesign CS6 does NOT show the bug.
But another one discussed here in answer #8:
OK, made my own file to look like your screen grabs in CS4 (6.0.5) and saved .indd, .inx and .idml files, then opened all three in CS6.
.indd opens correctly, .inx both top and bottom color bars have shifted, and .idml only the bottom set of bars added to the B master shift.
@Peter – then we have another bug: "open INX with InDesign CS6". A severe one…
We should file two bug reports. One for the INX and one for the IDML error.
But first I have to reconstruct your INX scenario…
@Peter – already filed the two bugs.
However, it would be good, if you or everyone who can confirm these bugs, would do the same at:
Europe, Middle East and Africa
