    Troubles linking idap files in Indesign




      I have some troubles linking my idap file to the package. I've made assignments and created an icap file for our client so he can make some text changes. But when he sends me an idap file back I get the following message:

      I have made no changes to the document or assignments…


      Any tips?

          InDesign thinks you made a change. How are you opening that assignment package?


          I would suggest opening the InDesign file first and then opening the package. That may help.


          BTW, why are using this workflow? With the advent of file sharing services such as Dropbox, simply putting everything into a dropbox folder works great.

            Hi Bob,


            I open the indesign file first and then link the idap file to the indesign package. I tried it on the server first, and then on the desk of the mac. It's strange, I tried it 3 times, and it only worked 1 time. the other 2 times I got the message.


            I will definitly try your dropbox suggestion!
