I'm trying to save a 20 Mb project in .imdl with CC InDesign but it results in a 1 or 2 Mb imdl archive that doesn't work. (I tried "saving as" and exporting). Does anyone know what the problem is?
It's expected that an IDML file will be smaller than its parent INDD file; many extraneous bits are stripped away in the conversion process. (Things like image previews, which will be recreated when the file is reopened with the linked files available).
You say the IDML doesn't work; what goes wrong with it?
I didn't know about the change of weight in IDML, thanks. A part from that the people who were trying to open the archive have told me that they have just installed some plugins and the archive is running correctly. Thank you very very much for your speed answering! (and xcuse me for my english)
