    My IDML file saved in Indesign CC won't open in Indesign 6

    yoorieacai Level 1

      Hello. I am on trial of Indesign CC, and exported a file to an IDML trying to open it on the school computer since they only have previous versions of Indesign.

      When I try to open my file that I worked on at home in Indesign CC, it won't open in Indesign 6.

      The pop up message I get is "Cannot open the file xxx.idml." 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."


      • The file IS saved as IDML
      • The file isn't open in another application


      I don't know how I can fix this issue. Could anybody help me out? I've tried both .indd and .idml saved under CC, but it refuses to open in prior versions.


      Thank you very much in advance.
