I have a pakage Cd with Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Standard I tried to open an In deign file in it but it id not open it said that there are plugins missing..... so how can open my file and i do not lose my original programes on this cd, is it possible to do an update or download the missing plugins? please inform me
The missing plugin message indicates the file you were trying to open was saved in a more recent version of InDesign. You can ask the person who made the file to export it to .idml for you, and if you have run the updater to patch CS4 to the most current patch it should be able to open that, but it will not be identical to the original. Any features added since CS4 will be lost, and text is likely to reflow.
The only versions currently available through authorized channels are CS6 as a perpetual license, or a subascription to Creative Cloud wihich will get ou the most current version (CC) as well as access to CS6.
