    Any way to open Creative Cloud InDesign files in CS4 if they were not exported/backsaved?

    juliad30433493

      We occasionally receive files created in a revent CC version of InDesign. Due to client relationships and pragmatics, we absolutely cannot request the client's subcontractors to downsave/export the files for us (sometimes the other subcontractor has delivered, closed their project, and invoiced).

       

      The expensive option is to purchase our own CC subscription, but since this is a rare occurrence that is vastly overpaying. Even a month-to-month would be overkill.

       

      Are there any tools, Adobe, third party or otherwise, that will let us open current InDesign files in our CS4?

       

      I have tried to find the solution, but there are vast numbers of hits telling me how to backsave.
