On open, on a long document in InDesign CS6 (8.0) I'm getting:
Document contains an invalid frame.
Story text begins -
Delete frame and associated story?
If I click 'No' it gives me the next figure (about forty of them) and then ultimately, the document opens.
Hi Manish. Thanks for the quick response.
Yes, the whole document opens.
I did try to export to idml but it stalled at 12% export.
I have now gone back and said YES to all the dialogue boxes and it seems to be fine without having deleted anything???
Your file won't open, right?
Legacy files are known to have problems from time to time, and the most reliable way I know to avoid those problems is to export .inx, when possible, from the original version. The second most reliable is to export .idml from the original version.
There are some scripts that will do a batch conversion to .inx or .idml to help you, if you have a lot of files, and if you think you don't have to thoroughly check every legacy file you open in a new version you are sadly mistaken. If you open a .indd file directly, as soon as you start to edit any text it will reflow to confrom to the new text engine and you may not see the problems on the page where you are working. .inx/.idml forces the entire document to recompose as soon as it opens.
