Hi there, suddenly I have lost around 10 pages of my InDesign document, no idea what happened.  I've tried restarting, and reopening the file a couple of times to no avail - anyone any ideas?  I've never seen this type of error before, basically the empty boxes you see used to contain text and images 😞 The rest of the 70 other pages are fine.

 

Thanks,

 

Liz

Try to export your file as idml, then open the idml file and save it. No guarantee…

Is this a file I can work in or should I try saving it back to indd?

No, you have to save it as an indd document.
