Multiple files to be saved manually in a book

This morning, after installing the newest update of InDesign, i started creating a book file. I wanted to place all the files in the book file. Immediately I got the "Save As" window for every file in the book seperatly, I think so the files will be saved in the newest version. Because I have more than 100 files in 1 book, this is verry time consuming. Is there a better way to make this less time consuming? Is it possible that the files can be saved automatically?

Look into the script Batch process by Peter Kahrel:

Re: Save files again after latest update

Whenever you try to open any files in the latest version i.e. ID 2020 which were created in the older version i.e. ID 2019 then it will give you prompt to save the file again while adding it into InDesign book because the file format gets changed as soon as you try to open the file in the different/newer version. you would probably need to re-save all the files at least one time and save it again so that all the files would become compatible with the newer version of ID CC 2020.

Re: Save files again after latest update

Hello,

 

In addition to the responses given earlier, I'd also recommend you to click on https://indesign.uservoice.com/ and provide your feedback/suggestion as it is a great feature to have in InDesign.

This is the best way of communicating with the Engineering and Product Management teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases. 

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Betreff: Multiple files to be saved manually in a book

Hi,

I have the same problem and we have more than 25000 existing InDesign files (version 14.0.3).

I also know the batch converter from Peter Kahrel. It works fine but if you have a lot of files it will also take a lot of time.

So this is not a easy and fast way. I think that adobe should offer a better solution. With every version change you have this problem again.

 

Regards,

Marcel
