Will it still open in Pagemaker?
Dear Peter, thank you for your reply. THe files open up fine in computer 1 ( old computer crashing real bad ) 7 is on xp unit The indesign is on new computer 2 running windos 7 not sure what is wrong have the pagemaker plug in installed.Can you help me open these files which were put in computer 2 by carbonite. also tried puting 7 file on fasyh drive and tried opening it got same damaged message. Considering gettig a 64 bit unit and the cloud but if i cannot open these i am sunk please help.
So it sounds like the files are not the originals, but copies from a Carbonite restore?
Can you zip the files and send to me? I'll send you an upload link in a minute.
First, remember that conversions from Pagemaker can range from near perfect to totally useless. If you used Adobe Table or OLE in Pagemaker you'll have real problems, and all images need to be unembedded before conversion or all you will get in ID are the screen previews (and that also means you need to have the original images available).
