    Unable to Open .indd File

    ramsyl2997687

      I have a .indd document that was sent to me but I can't open it.  I use CS5 and when I try to open it it says Missing Plugins: SharedContent.InDesignPlugin. 

       

      Can some shed some light as to how I can open the file. 

       

      Many thanks

          That file was created with a later version of InDesign. You’ll need to get an IDML file from whoever sent it and don’t expect it to be perfect.

           

           

           

          Text will likely reflow and any new features will be lost or badly mangled.

           

           

           

          Get a PDF, too, just to have something to check.
