I have a lot of old PageMaker 6.5 files that need to be upgraded to InDesign.
When I try to open them in InDesign CS3, I get an error that says:
Cannot open the file "XYZ". Adobe InDesign may not support the file format, a plug-in that supports the file format may be missing, or the file may be open in another application.
I get this error on a Mac Pro G5 (PowerPC), running OS X 10.5.8.
What's interesting is that when I try to open the same files on other computers on the network, it works just fine. The other machines are all Intel Macs, running OS X 10.6.8 or greater. The files are on a Mac Server.
Can this problem be fixed on the Mac G5, maybe by installing a plugin, or is there no hope?
The . in the extension to me looks in the wrong place, try .pm6
Interesting thought, but I suspect the file is actually a training manual and that's the real name of the file, with no extension at all. Pagemaker 6.5 files would have had a .p65 extension, I believe.
