I stupidly have been saving my work files as 5.5 instead of InDesign CS4 or later (IDML). I'm sick at home and need to work on them. Here is the link to the file on basecamp: https://www.dropbox.com/s/onxzz5v3t54aufz/Chocolate%20cake%20recipe-00.indd
Any kind soul that can help out gets a thousand internet karma points!
Doing it now....
You are a life saver. Thanks again Peter!
