InDesign CS4 Keeps Opening the Wrong Document

Jan 7, 2014 8:56 AM

Tags: #cs4 #pagemaker_7.0



I tried to convert a PM file with InDesign CS4. But for some strange reasons, it always opens the wrong document (I have another PM document with similiar name which I was able to convert to InDesign a few weeks ago). Whenever I tried to open the new PM document, it did convert but it was the previous converted document.


Could someone let me know what would the reason be?  I have cleared the Recovery Cache files but still no help.


Any kind assistance will be appreciated.


Thank you.


PS: I am using Windows 7 Pro

    My guess would be that the documents are actually the same with different names.

    Move and change the name on one of them and see if it makes any difference (or resave with a new name and location from PM).

    Close ID. Move the old file off the computer onto a cd so it is not available, then rename the  InDesign SavedData file in the <user>\appdata\local\Adobe\InDesign\Version 6.0\en_US\caches folder. Restart ID and try File > Open... again.

    Trash your prefs (see Replace Your Preferences) and if that doesn't do it, I have nothing more to offer. Something is seriously screwed up someplace.
