Hi, 

I need some assistant here. So, I am unable to save my work, not even making a copy. When I tried to save it, a box pop up and says "Indesign is unable to save this file. We tried, but it appears to be damaged." Anyone know how to fix it? And what is the problem? Please tell me what to do. Many thanksss!!!

Best regards

If you can't save the file - make a new file with the same page dimensions and margins

Then with both documents open (old and new) - use the Pages Panel sub menu to Move Pages

When the option comes up to Move Pages - set the New Doc as the target. 

 

This will move all the pages to your new document - then try and save it.
