I have had Indesign for over a year and used with no problems until about a month ago. I created a flyer, saved and closed it and when i went to reopen it i got the error message saying: the file [filename].indd is damaged and cannot be recovered (Error code 5). I was frustrated because i had to redo it, but what is even more frustrating is that it seems like this is happening to EVERY file i open and close (old or new) which means I have lost a lot of large files (books in fact) because of some problem with indesign. I desperately need help to fix this. I work on w windows 8 computer using indesign cs6.
Just a shot in the dark but it could be a corrupt font, not a corrupt InDesign file.
Would the font have to be used in the document that was opened? Do you know how i find a corrupt font?
