ID CS5.5 IDML file and missing plug-ins...need help

Jun 21, 2012 12:50 PM

Tags: #cs5.5 #idml #plug-ins

I'm currently running ID CS5.5 and trying to open a CS5 file, ( I think). However, even after converting it to a IDML file extension it just hangs and forces me to shut down. The whole purpose of this is there are several plug-ins including InBooklet SE that I no longer have access to. I'm unable to find the other plugins as well but need to be able to work in this file as the original creator. Any help or suggestions?

Here is my report:

    You can't convert to .idml by changing the file extension. You must export the file from the oringal version as a .idml file.

     

    That said, you can use jongware's script to identify the version of the file, even if it won't open: Adobe Forums: [Ann] Identify Your InDesign File

     

    That said, InBooklet SE was part of InDesign CS3, but I see it listed inthe plugins used. I also see a number of what look like third-party plugins listed, and that may be the problem. What's happening when you try to open the file?

    Melanie,

     

    When replying by email, please remove your personal information. All responses are posted on the website.

     

    If the third-party plugins are essential to the file (and it sounds like they are -- the .idml export should have removed any non-essential plugin info), there's probably no way to get the file to work without them. Do you get a missing plugin warning when you try to open the .idml?

    You don’t need them. It’s an alert.

     

     

     

    It’s from opening files in new versions that don’t have them. The IDML route is the only way to strip that info out.

     

     

     

    Bob

    Are you on Mac? Do you get a crash report? Post it on Pastebin.com and put a link here.

     

    You can also try following the directions here: Adobe Forums: InDesign CS5.5 Not Responding to diagnose the hange.

    Yeah, that's unfortunate.
