Thanks, but that won't help here. I know how to open them how I want them to open, I just need a way for the client to be able to identify them as ID 2014 documents, in spite of what the finder is telling them. I was hoping there was some sort of hidden creator field or something like that somewhere... It seems to me that the only way to identify an ID2014 file as being an ID2014 file is to open it in ID 2014 and note that there wasn't an error.
I think someone has a script. Hopefully, they'll chime in here before long
That would be great! That would solve the "getting past q/c" problem, which I suppose, is my only concern.
If you are using OSX every file has a creator property that can be read via AppleScript. So it would be very easy to create a droplet app that would display the creator. I can't do it today, but will try to post something tomorrow.
If you are using OSX this simple AppleScript droplet will tell you if the file type is InDesign2014 ("IDdX"):
In the zip archive there's a droplet app named CheckIdVersion. Drag a file onto it and you'll get a dialog telling you whether it is an InDesign2014 file.
Here's the code:
on open fileselection
tell application "Finder"
if (count of fileselection) is greater than 1 then
display dialog "Please Select a Single File"
set t to file type of item 1 of fileselection
if t is "IDdX" then
display dialog "File Type is InDesign 2014."
display dialog "File Type is Not InDesign 2014."
