Good morning/afternoon, all.
I'm in the process of converting documents from Ventura 10 to InDesign CS6 in the course of a material rewrite. Up until now everything has been going easily, but I've hit a snag I can't quite figure out.
I'm receiving an Import Failed error when attempting to place a specific .txt file into ID. As a plain-text file strips the copy down to its base elements, I'm confused as to why this is occuring. When I use the same text in a different format (doc or rtf), it places without a hitch. Given that it functions in other formats, I assume that it's not something in the text, but I can't say that for certain. In short, I'm stumped. The copy is proprietary, else I'd provide it here for anyone to dig through.
Any ideas on some things I might try to tinker around with? I'd be happy to just go with the RTF, but that's not an option unfortunately.
Would it work to import the text as RTF, showing the import options and removing the styles and formatting?
It might also be worth trashing your prefs (see Replace Your Preferences) or checking to be sure all the import filters are in place (sorry, don't know which filter handles plain text, off hand).
