I really need a magazine template for a project, if I don't find one soon that's free or EVEN OPENS with this "InDesign" program I am cancelling my subscription and deleting it ASAP. Some of you I am sure know the feeling when you want to throw your computer across the room after searching for HOURS. I'm sorry to seem so rude but am very upset with this program and so far the answers I have received from the customer service.
InDesign is not MS Publisher; it is intended for creative professionals who typically design from scratch rather than template.
That being said, there are templates available. If you have the most current release (or close to the current release) than any valid InDesign file should open. Have you found templates which will not open?
What version of InDesign do you have and what are the file extensions (.indd, indt, idml, .inx) which will not open?
