Sharing InDesign files with people
I have a Mac Pro running OS X 10.9.5 and InDesign CS6 version 8.1. My client has upgraded to Yosemite and they are now unable to open my files. I’ve found a way round this problem by saving the file as IDML, then opening the IDML file and saving it as an InDesign file which they can open, but this is time consuming when sending a large number of files. Peter Butler Is your client running the same version of InDesign as you? Newer versions can open files created on an older version of InDesign but if you’re going the other way, you normally need to export to InDesign Markup Language (IDML) format so that the older version can read it. If you are both on the same version then your files have probably become corrupted in some way. Drag the contents of ~/ Library/Preferences/ Adobe InDesign to trash and try saving as normal again.
