My work requires I frequently open and view numerous previously made ID files. When I do this, I DO NOT MODIFY OR SAVE these files. When I go to view the list of these files in (mac) finder windows, it will show the most recently OPENED Indesign file as being the most recently changed or updated file in the viewer listings. This is very frustrating as I also need to view CHRONOLOGICALLY thru the list of ID files in finder/window view. No other Adobe apps do this. Is is something to do w/ID mini saves or auto backup???? How can I shut it off so older files will not show as newly modified files.
Opening them in whatever version of ID was used to create them is the only way. As you have found out, if you open an older version file in a newer version of the software it will always be shown as modified.
Hi Larry. Thanks for assisting. I wasn't clear enough in my description. When I said I was opening older files, those were of the same CS version, just only created at an earlier date. Thanks
