HAVE AN IDML that DOES NOT import CORRECTLY?

Postby Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 22 Jan 2018, 17:15

Hi,

if you have tested IDML Import in QuarkXPress 2017 January 2018 Update and it does not import correctly, then please post the IDML here. Or send it to me via private message.

We will analyze it and see whether we can improve the IDML Import.

Thanks
Matthias

QXP doesn't import IDML files exported by CS4. If the files are opened and saved in CC2018, no problem. It's necessary to guarantee compatibility with IDML files created by CS4, CS5 etc. I have already sent a couple of files to Mathias.

Hi Pedrober,

the files you sent me contained corrupt document preferences, so let's first find out whether repairing your InDesign preferences solves this.

Thank you very much for your answer. I deleted ID preferences, I opened the IDML files and exported them again. No luck. QXP refused to import the IDML file. Afterwards, I opened the original ID file and I created a new IDML file. No luck. I'll send the new file to you, just to verify that it's OK.

Hi Pedrober,

I tried your IDML and it doesn't open for me either.

I resaved it with InDesign CS6 and now it works fine. So it seems that it is not the InDesign versions causing this.

We will analyze it and get back to you via Facebook, as it's not very efficient to respond at two places simultaneously.

Thanks
Matthias

may be wrong but didn't CS4 save idml for opening in CS3, so would be different idml than CS5 and later would save?

CS3 didn't have IDML, back then it was INX.
