Conversion of PM to ID is iffy at best. There is no way to tell from your description exactly what’s going on and even if there was I’m not sure there’s anything anyone could offer to avoid it.
thx for answering Bob,
what is "iffy at best"?
is it possible to send you an example (indd and p65) to see what I ment in details?
It means you don’t know what it’s going to look like until you open it.
ID has no support for OLE and anything that was placed into PM that way will be toast.
Hhhmm, what would you advise?
There are hundreds of p65 documents to handle/convert and creating everything new in ID is not a real good idea.
I didn’t say you had to create them new, but you need to be aware that just opening them in ID is not going to give you an exact duplicate of the PM document. You’re going to have work to do.
