Ok, I did a big mistake, I overwrote the original file and lost the native InDesign file.
For example, I delete all content from Chapter 3, then start to work on Chapter 4 and just click the Save button, and that way I lost the native Chapter 3.indd file.
I know I can't do anything now. I must create chapter 3 from start.
I have a PDF file chapter3.pdf.
My question is because, in that chapter 3, there are 10 very big tables, is there any way that I can import those tables in InDesign from my pdf file?
I tried to export a table from pdf to RTF format and I have good results in word, but when importing to ID all text is in separate text boxes, and the formatting is messed up.
There are a few utilities that can convert a pdf to InDesign, but you should not expect a perfect conversion, google "pdf to InDesign". You might also consider adding a back-up software, (like Time Machine for Mac) where you have the option to go back to an earlier version of your file.
You can try:
Thank you all.
I tried everything and fortunately, nothing is helped.
I did not try plugins Markzwareand and Recosoft because they are not free.
I guess I must start from scratch.
Can you upload a [sample] page?
