After a long gap – í used CS2 many moons ago – I recently took out a subscription to InDesign CC 2015. I am using a Mac OS 10.10.5.
A very basic error message I get when trying to place text from a .docx file – ‘Cannot place this file. No filter found for requested operation.’
The strange thing is that I can open any number of .docx files without any problem, but the one specific one I need to open steadfastly refuses to co-operate.
This leads me to believe that it is something specific within this file causing the problem. It is quite a large file with hundreds of hyperlinks, ±60 embedded graphics, some tables. etc.
Anyone had similar experiences and any possible solutions. I have saved the file in RTF and that does import without the filter error message.
Any thoughts gratefully received.
I think I have answered my own question! My client had put password protection on the file which I had retained. However when I removed it the document imported perfectly.
So there you have it – remove password protection.
