I received an indd template file from a client who has cs5.5. I have cs6. I made my additions to the file, but when I try to save as an idml file so she can open it in cs5.5, InDesign crashes. I tried deleting preferences, still crashed. I tried updating to 8.0.1, still crashed. The "Fault Module Name" in the crash report was "TABLE MODEL.RPLN" and tables were the things that I added to the file, so I tried deleting all the tables from the file and saving as idml....and it worked. But the tables are the thing I need to send! I will just send them to her as a word doc if necessary, and she will have to insert, but that's obviously not ideal. Anyone have any thoughts for me?? Would be much appreciated.
Do you receive any missing plugins warning while opening the file? Before you make any edits to the file after opening the file in CS6, are you able to export to IDML? Did the author of the file use any extra plugin to create those tables in the document? Did you try copying the contents to a completely new document and then try exporting to IDML along with your modifications?
Hello, thanks for the response. Answers to your questions:
I get no missing plugin warnings.
I am able to export the original file to idml.
There were no tables in the original document, I added them myself. When I tried deleting the tables, but leaving all the other changes I made, I was able to export to idml. It does seem to be the tables that are the problem. I asked and the author doesn't use any plugins..
I have not tried copying the contents to a new document...there are 40 pages plus master pages, I only know how to select the contents of one spread at a time, is there a way to select everything...? I have tried saving it as a new indd file, and that one crashed. I also just tried moving all the pages into a new indd file. That one crashed on exporting to idml as well.
Well that worked! What would it have been? Nothing I did on purpose...I changed back the font, font size, and paragraph alignment and it still saved down fine. Took way too long, but I'm glad it worked! Thank you.
