I have a file that is part of our library on the server for InDesign, using Windows. It comes up with an error message saying it is in use and needs to be closed. There are two other people that use this file, but we all have InDesign closed and no InDesign files open. I believe this means it is corrupted since it shows up when I go to "file, open". Is there a way to rectify this?
look for and delete a .idlk file in the same folder.
Adobe InDesign (and other applications too) have some kind of problem with remote servers when the connection is lost, often is this loss of connection so short that the user is not aware of that. Does it work better if you copy the file to your local drive and work from there?
Please email your InDesign file to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will take a look at the document.
If the file is larger than 10 Mb, you can zip (and password protect) the file and upload to Creative Cloud account (or Dropbox) and send us the document link.
