My coworkers can't open a indesign dokument/idml because of a missing plugin
How do i fix it?
Try to do idml again.
Or ask here (download to some dropbox/yadisk and give it the link).
In most cases idml helps! Instead CS3 and below - needs to do .inx
You will have to either identify the plug-in and find out if it is available and install it on the coworkers' machine(s) or have the person who created the original file resave the document with that plug-in disabled (depending on the plug-in this may alter part of the document). An IDML of a document that requires a certain plug-in will not usually do away with that document's need for the plug-in.
I have over 3,000 indd files effected by a now missing element of a 30 day Xmpie plugin that was an eval copy and expired long ago. Seems the pluin went in with ID2018 -I am using ID2020. I have no idea why the problem just poppped up now - BUT am thourly hooped. Any suggestions? (please & ty)
I'm not sure I understand why you would use a plug-in that you only had a thirty day license for to create that many documents or how you could create that many files in just thirty days. But the answer I gave over a year ago is still the best advice. Find an updated version of the plug-in and buy it legitimately.
Wow, what an "answer".
BTW, I've used XmPie for over 10 years and recently decided against renewing my 2 licenses for it for my team as we've found that using InDesign's own data merge function, and the free vesion of PDFSam and the QuiteImposing plugin we can do everything we need for a fraction of the cost.
