Hello, 
I have 15 IND files reprensenting a law bible of more than a 1000 pages. Somehow they lost the word source files. What would be the most efficient and reliable way to convert these IND into word without any weird caracters or other export disformations.

Thanks in advance,

Gabriel

A lot depends on how the InDesign files are built. If all the text is in one connected text frame, you can go and save that as an RTF. If not, and the layout is not too complex, you can export as a PDF and save that as a Word file. Eventually, it will help to clean up the layout, by deleting page numbers, page headers etc, so everything that could be disturbing during the conversion.

 

But maybe you still have a copy of the Word files that got send to you for putting them into a nice layout?

 

BTW: fifteen files is still very handy. I wouldn't really bother to automate that…
