I was trying to save the text from a file, and created a bunch of .icml files (even though I hit cancel a bunch of times). Later, I threw away the icml files, since I found a way to just save the text as rtf.  BUT now I can't edit the file. Is there a way to revert the file to something that I can edit? When I try to edit it it says "Unable to check out this file. It may be in use by someone else". It still has the normal .indd ending ... 

 

Thank you!!
