I click on the install button on the exchange website, then I get a window going to my plugin folder in Indesign CS5 but there is the selection button is gray out. Also I was asking if the upgrade from CS5 to CS5.5 is a free upgrade or you have to pay for it?
I wa also asking how to install the overlay creator panel into my CS5?
CS5.5 is not a free update unless you bought CS5 during the narrow time window just before CS5.5 came out.
Perhaps a screenshot of your extension installation problem would help, or explore the Extensions Manager.
Overlay Creator is part of the Folio Producer Tools.
Thank you very much I was able to find the file from your assistance and down load it..
These are the windows I get when trying to install plug-in from the Adobe exchange site.
I don't see where I can add attachment to this email. I did some screen shots of what I get
when I'm trying to install the Indesign plug-ins
I click on the install button on the exchange website, then I get a window going to my plugin folder in Indesign CS5 but there is the selection button is gray out.
I believe that dialog box is asking you to navigate to an extension that you have downloaded via a web browser, and then wish to install into InDesign. You are not supposed to try to select an extension, folder, or plugin that has previosly been installed into InDesign,
Thank you, I will give it a try this morning. You have been very helpful thank you again. I don't want to always trouble you. I was looking over my stuff as it shows me in the forum but at this point I don't see the area to post a new question to the forum, so I don't trouble you a lot.
Yet here is another question. I design this promotional pdf for my business and a graphic designer friend Atlanta is going to help me by redesigning parts of it. He has Indesign CS 4 and I'm using Indesign CS5, he can't open my CS5 file how do I do a back dated version to CS4. When I was using CS4 Indesign I was sure I was able to backdate a file to CS3 Indesign. Help
You will need to export .idml files for your colleague to open in CS4. Any unsupported features you used will be lost, and some text may reflow, so there is a really good chance the appearance of hte file will be differnt in CS4 than it is in CS5. It is much better for collaboration if you both use the same version. If that's not possible, at least send a PDF along so you both know what the other one thinks the job should look like.
