I just started having issues opening a multi-page PDF in InDesign, and initially thought it was just the file having some sort of protection or possibly corruption. However I was able to open the same file in Photoshop, so I created a new INDD file, exported the PDF to desktop, and then tried to open, but still received the same error, which is:
"Cannot open the file "Test-1.pdf". Adobe InDesign may not support the file format, a plug-in that supports the file format may be missing, or the file may be open in another application."
This same "Test.pdf" file opens without issue in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Acrobat. Yes, I've checked for and downloaded the latest InDesign updates as well as completely uninstalled InDesign and re-installed, with no change to the original issue.
Operating System is Windows 10 Home 64bit
InDesign version is 13.0.1 x64
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
InDesign has never supported opening PDF files.
You can place PDF files (File > Place) as graphics into InDesign. You cannot edit them. Interactivity is not supported when a PDF is placed.
The seems like a missed opportunity. I'm surprised Adobe hasn't fixed this.
