I have a problem with InDesign CS4.
When I try yo open a CS4(!) file it says:
The document "filename.indd" uses one or more plug-ins which are not currently available on your system. Do you want to open anyway?
If I chose: "OK' it says:
Cannot open "filename.indd". Please upgrade your plug-ins to their latest versions, or upgrade to the latest version of Adobe InDesign.
The only answers I could find by looking online is that I am using an older version of InDesign and that the file is created in a newer version. But when I look at the type of the file I am trying to open it says: InDesign® CS4 Document. So I should be able to open it with InDesign CS4 right?
The operating system cannot distinguish a newer version of InDesign if it's never been installed. They only associate an INDD files with the version of InDesign YOU have installed—InDesign CS4.
You need to notify the person who sent you the file to export an IDML file so you can open it in InDesign CS4.
I keep getting the exact same message, but I know it wasn't created on a newer version of indesign because I created the document in the first place.... so why won't my indesign cs4 open the document anymore? please help!
We've heard that story here before and it almost always turns out that the
user downloaded a demo and saved a file with it along the way.
