I am having issues when editing files that were created in InDesign CS5.5 with CS6, most specifically with Tables.
When I open a file created in CS5.5 with CS6 some of the tables are corrupted. When I try to edit the content in the corrupt tables or even resize the text frame, the table and all content below become overset. Even adding a single character causes overset. (the text frame and table cells are large enough to accommodate the changes)
I can edit the file in CS5.5 without any issues.
I've also tried:
- deleting all paragraph, character, and table styles
- pasting the content into a new file
The only way that fixed the problem was merging the table rows, but with the content we have this is definitely not ideal. The file is a multi page application form and we have more than one hundred similar files.
Any guidance on this would be greatly appreciated.
With every version there are changes to the text engine that affect composition. When you open a legacy file the changes are not made until you touch the text in some way. When you open a .idml file the changes are made at opening.
