Plugins- CS5 cannot open file?
I got an indy file from a customer that gives me an immediate error and will not open on my machine.
First I get a you do not have the plugin "SHAREDCONTENT.RPLN"
I click okay and then get another list that I don't have and Adobe suggests that I update plugins.

FormField.InDesignPlugin
XML.InDesignPlugin
TEXT.InDesignPlugin
Hyperlinks.InDesignPlugin
DocumentFramework.InDesignPlugin
Graphics.InDesignPlugin

What gives? Is it on my end or theirs?

I'm running CS5 and the file info says CS5 as well.

Cannot open on any other computer running CS5 here either, thinking it must be customer.

I'll bet it's a 5.5 file.

Does CS5.5 only show as a CS5 file when doing a get info on a Mac?

Honestly I don't know. I haven't run across a 5.5 file in the wild yet but that error sure looks like a newer version error.

Pretty sure info will tell you it's the newest version of said software installed no matter what version it was built in.

That has to be one of the dumbest "features" to any of the Creative Suite apps. It doesn't tell you anything useful, so it takes running into it a few times before you figure out the problem. Adobe needs to figure out a better system for that.

What I hate is that on Mac, the .indd extension offers no help at all. I usually save my files .ind3, .ind4, .ind5 .ind55 etc for future reference. Also, if you MAKE the software, why have it treat leading/tracking differently so you get reflow when going between versions; Adobe, if you make the .inx/.idml a "save down" then let it open the same friggin' way as it did on the newer version without the reflow.

what's even more fun is that it will "lose" certain fonts when downsaved. A file with the fonts loaded the whole downsave process will ask for [fontname]BT suddenly when opened in cs3

Alright, I can't figure out how to save as any other version than CS5 on my machine.
I am trying to tell a new InDesign user how to save as a file I can open.

How does one save to a lower/older version of InDesign????

I think you have to export instead of Save As. Pick InDesign Markup (IDML) as the file type.

My favorite part is how each version reads font names differently. So one version sees "Times New Roman" and another sees "TimesNewRoman" and yet another sees "TimesNewRoman(truetype)" and they're all the same stinkin' font! WTF doesn't even begin to cover that stupidity.
