CS5 cannot open .idml file exported from CS6

Dec 6, 2012 4:32 AM

I've seen this question before from people having problems with other versions of InDesign. I, too, am having an issue with plug-ins that do not allow me to open an idml file. I downloaded the script that verifies the version used to create the idml to be sure it really was made from CS6, not CS5.5. It's not an empty file as it is 3.3mb Interestingly, when the customer packaged the file it came up with no links. It's a 32-page document with lots of photos, graphics, etc. How it is possible that it would not have any links? Any suggestions short of having to upgrade to CS6 would be helpful. Thank you.

    If all the images were pasted there would be no links.


    What is the exact error message that you are getting? Are you sure this is actually a .idml file and not a .indd file that somebody changed the extension on? Is your copy of CS5 patched to 7.0.4?
