A document created with new InDesign CS5.5 is not opening with earlier versions of InDesign. If I try to open in InDesign CS5 we will get an error ‘Cannot open “filename.indd”.
Cannot Open File
Cannot open "IDCSS.indd". Please
upgrade your plug-ins to their latest
versions, or upgrade to the latest
version of Adobe InDesign.
Cannot open File with new InDesign
Some major changes had been made in the 5.5 version of InDesign and there is no way of opening the newer files with the older software.
However, there is a simple workaround – open your files in the Indesign CS5.5 and export them as .idml files. After that you will be able to access your files via the older version of the software.
