Hi there. I had accessed the 7 day free trial InDesign and cancelled prematurely. I now wish to take out a subscription on a monthly basis and I wondered if I did so whether I would be able to access the docs I had been working on prior to cancelling. Thank you !
Where did you save them (e.g. to your own hard drive; to Creative Cloud...)
Thanks for you reply, appreciate your help. I have tried checking my CC account but only have my original images saved there. I am not 100% savvy about how InDesign works but I created a docent which was a whole 170 page book document on InDesign which I saved to Indesign. I then exported the doc to pdf which I have stored on my laptop. The Design doc is not on my laptop or CC so presumed it disappear once the ID account ended.
Does this make better sense?
InDesign works in INDD files. It saves them where you say. So... where did you save your INDD files? When working with InDesign you may have hundreds of files for a book, so you need to be absolutely on top of where you save every file.
To add to Test Screen's advice, it's important to be well-organised and methodical when creating documents with InDesign, perhaps having a folder for each document with a folder inside that containing the assets, and making regular backup copies externally as well as locally. With a document that you've been working on for a long period, it's worth saving it as an IDML document and incrementally renaming it so as to clear out the crud the builds up over time and that can cause issues.
Also adding to to Test screens advice. Have you done a search on your computer for the INDD name of the document?
Thank you so much both of you. I have located the INDD files I had been working which were saved to CC. I am not brilliantly tech savvy and new to ID so really appreciate your kind advice. I can't open the INDD files presebntly but I'm presuming when I resubscribe to ID they will open then.
