Content just disappeared!! please help

Jul 23, 2012 4:49 AM

Mac 10.7.4

Indesign CS5


Im working on our annual pulication, everything has been fine up until this point. Im scrolling through the pages inserting copy, when I scrolled back the content had just dissapeared, vanished! I scrolled to other pages and the content began to just dissapear as if it had been deleted.


I selected all the content on the page and frames of elements showed but i couldnt select them. I looked again and the content frames had dissapeared.


any ideas?

    Seriously hard to tell what the problem is.


    Try doing a File>Export and choos IDML and open that. It opens as an Untitled document. Don't close your original for fear of forever losing it.


    Exporting to IDML is a known cure for repairing corrupt documents, and it might help here.

    I would also do a save as to a new name to hopefully get a second copy you can play with.

    It would also be helpful, I think if you could show us a screen shot of a page with the layers panel open completely.
