I noticed that a lot many people have faced this issue wherein we get an InDesign document from someone that uses plugins that we don't have, this causes the missing plugin dialog to be displayed. This missing plugin in document causes some issues like
The workaround for this problem is to save the document as IDML and then resave this back to INDD, this works, but is cumbersome and time consuming if we have lots of documents.
In order to solve all these issues, i have created a plugin that allows you to ignore the missing plugin info. just at the click of a button and all the open document would have their missing plugin info. ignored. This saves you time and all the hassles described above.
You can use a 7 day trial version of the plugin at the following link
I hope this helps the users. Do contact me in case you find any bugs or have any suggestions to improve the solution.
Thanks for the suggestion, i have dropped an email to them enquiring the process for submission of plugins for them to review.
Hi My friend! is there the same solution for win 2021?
Hi Manan, this sounds great!
I downloaded the file INEXUtils Installer.exe for Windows and ran it, but I don't see anything in InDesign when I start it and open a document.
Did I perhaps do it wrong?
Hi Manan, I should have mentioned that I want to install it in InDesign 18.1 for Windows.
Should the CC2017 installer work on later versions?
Hi @GJ du Toit,
No, the 2017 version won't work on the later versions. I have not updated the windows installer since long, I will have to do it for you to test it. Which version of InDesign are you using 2023 or 2024? I shall put up the demo versions for Win very soon.
That would be wonderful. I'm really stuck. The documents that come up with the missing plugin error all crash InDesign if I try to save them as idml.
