I have to place a large number of PDF files. Sometimes I get an error: "Failed to open the PDF file". In the InDesign Forum I found that this also happens in the GUI from time to time and that the workaround is to turn on the Show Import Options. But this is obviously not an option for me.
Is there any alternative?
Thank you, Ralf
When you retry, is it always the same PDF?
Otherwise I'd play around like
- catch the error
- perform some potential cleanup of resources (files, memory), e.g. SaveAs, or a Close-Reopen cycle
- retry the same PDF
