My friend has converted some PageMaker documents with CS 4 in INDD format. I tried to open them with my CS6 but it kept
stop working with the following error messages:
Files that help describe the problem:
But if he saved them in InDesign Template (indt) format, I can open them without any problems.
So my question is: What's the difference between INDD and INDT formats besides the names are different? Why couldn't I open the INDD format files but no problem with the INDT files?
Any suggestions/comments are much appreciated.
PS: I just started using CS6 recently and still learning all the different tricks. I have to use CS6 since I still have quite a few PM files to be convered.
There's not really much differnce at all except for the default opening process. .indd opens as original, and .indt opens as a copy. Try opening one of the problem files as a copy (it's an option in the Open dialog).
Thank you for your quick responses. I tried to open the files as a copy, but the same error came on. So we have converted all of the files into .indt and I was able to open all of them in CS6 without any problems.
I guess there's must be something in the original CS4 .indd files that are causing the problems.
Thank you again.
