    Backsave in 6 (PC) mutates to a zip file


      I need to backsave InDesign 6 (PC) file for use with 5, but the export to idml ends up as a zip file after being emailed. How can I prevent this?

          .idml IS a zip archive, but with the .idml extension instead of .zip, but it's possible that your email program re-zipped it when you mailed it. Did they attempt to unzip at the other end? If they see a whole bunch of folders and a designmap.xml file they can just rename the zip file to .idml and it should be OK. Otherwise, they should see the original .idml that can be extracted and opened.
