You people have ruined my day!
I have a client who has a 300 page catalog - divided into seperate InDesign files and saved in CS5.5 - on a PC.
My job is to update the files, new product numbers, etc.
But I opened some of the files in CS6 on my Mac, and could only save them as .idml files, which sucks!
I then opened them in CS5.5, but the files I previously opened in CS6 will NOT open in CS5.5
Any explanation for this? I may have to go back a re do all of my work so far. Which would make me very unhappy with Adobe.
Thanks in advance, KO.

IDML files saved or exported from CS6 should open with CS5.5.
However, some things could change due to some changes in features in CS6.
But basically they should open.
To be successful with opening the IDML files with CS5.5, best use the latest bug fix version of InDesign CS5.5.
That is version 7.5.3.
