I have place an incopy file in an indesign doc. I cannot edit it in either incopy or indesign. It says I am editing it in another frame. But I am not. I believe this might have something to do with the fact that I was editing the file in indesign when indesign crashed. But I cannot find the recovery files. Where are they stored in Indesign CS 2014 or how do I fix this. Thanks.
Recovery files are only accessible to ID when it restarts. You cannot open them yourself.
I'm not an InCopy user, but are you able to do anything like check the story in or out? Does it help to pass it through IDML? See Remove minor corruption by exporting
Here's the thing.
I was working in the file in Indesign CS when that app began to freeze and crash so much that I decided to upgrade to CS 2014.
It appears the working file warning is coming from the CS not from CS 2014.
So, I opened CS and the warning file automatically opened.
Which says to me somewhere the system is saying this file is in use.
So, I closed the file but I still couldn't check in the Incopy.
I am not sure I can figure this out.
I will rename the incopy file and relink in all indesign file, because time is of the essence.
Hopefully that will work.
