    Folio Builder: An error has occurred opening the source file for the article layout.

    Steve Kelly

      I have been working on a Folio. When I sat down to work on my folio, I was instructed by indesign to update my Folio producer tools, which I did.


      Since then I can no longer view any article layout from that folio in indesign. Indeed any folio that I create that does not reside on my desktop give the same problem. I can import articles, add articles and they all upload to the proper place at adobe and I can view them. But I simply cannot open them up through folio builder as I previously.



      The exact error message is as below:




      An error has occurred opening the source file for the article layout.

      The InDesign file for the layout cannot be found.

      Another strange thing that seems to be happening is that the folio will randomly reoder the articles in the folio.


      I have dumped my indesign prefs, tried creating an entirely new project, made a new account and even reinstalled the entire software.


      But the problem of opening an article that I have imported or added to a folio, simply not being found to open has got me stumped. I can't proceed with a major project until I can sort this out.


      Can anyone help.


      Many thanks





      The problem initially seemed very similar to the one linked below, but I dont get the content generation error
