I recently upgraded to CS6 Design Standard. I was told before purchase that CS3 documents would transfer seamlessly to CS6 ... however, that is not what is happening. When I try to open a CS3 InDesign document in CS6, it tells me I have a "corrupted database," and that I need to export the document out of CS3 (InDesign Interchange, I think) in order to open in CS6. I have like 10 years of documents that I need to access, and I can't resave every one in order to open them. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Is there a workaround?
Best to ask InDesign questions on the InDesign forum
Exporting to INX should only be required to downgrade a document from CS6 to CS3 (so you can open a CS6 document in CS3).
CS6 should be able to open documents created in CS3 - without any special tricks required.
This INX workaround seems to be required because the CS3 documents are corrupt
Are they all corrupt? Again, take the discussion to the InDesign forum.
