    InDesign CC 2017 files opening directly in CS6

      A course attendee who followed an InDesign training in a version CC 2015, would like to open their files in InDesign CS6 (which is good enough for her work). Of course, we could have saved a separate IDML file or created a package (with the IDML automatically included in the folder).


      But as I recall correctly, from a certain version on, InDesign CC went on to save IDML resources into the native INDD file itself ! So the InDesign CC file should open directly in CS6, prompting the obvious warning that the conversion might omit certain newer features. I just tried it and it works. But I can't find a trace of this new behavior in any Help resource or New Feature list. (I'd like to refer the user to a URL explaining the procedure.) Am I dreaming, or... ?
