Hi there, my name is Pablo; I was working on an indesign file, my laptop crushed and when I restarted and tried to open the file again, an error message appeared (see img attached). The file appears in the folder without the ind logo, not sure what that means anyways...(see img attached). In any case I haven't found any way to open the file and retrieve the info...
Anybody has any idea how to solve this ?
Thank you so much !
Thanks Eugene, never done tis before...how do I run the script ? Do I need a specific software or app ? Thanks
Can you post the .indd file here? OR send to me in a private message.
I got the file - opened fine for me.
I sent the idml file - should open and remove any corruption.
Although - as mentioned below deleting the IDLK would probably do the trick.
But you've probably lost some edits/changes etc.
Please double check all is in order.
Thanks Eugene, the file you sent me works 🙂
first delete the InDesign lock file (starting with ~ace...).
As long as this file exists InDesign will not open your file as InDesign believes that this file is already opened by another user (see error message).
Edit: misspelling corrected
Thanks Stephan, will keep in mind that tip for the next time 🙂
