plugin to allow you to run cs6 indesign files in cs5?


in our office we have multiple users all using different levels of creative suite, they include CS5, CS5.5 and CS6.

Most adobe files seem to work fine when switching between different CS versions, ie. i can open a CS6 PSD fine in CS5. But with indesign files they dont want to open.

I know about saving them as an indesign markup file and reopening them but from a work flow point of view this is quite tedious.

Does any one know of a plugin that i can install on CS5 & CS5.5 that will allow me to work in native CS6 Indesign files ? or a batch converter tool that would allow me to drag a load of CS6 id files and convert them to either CS5 files or indesign markup files ?

Accepted Answer

InDesign files are very different from their other Adobe brethren. Each version brings key changes in how the page is structured. I'll leave it at that.

Here's a discussion that provides an answer to your question. Essentially, you export to IDML format and hope for the best.
