How to Open InDesign CS5.5 in CS4

To be able to open an Adobe InDesign CS5.5 file in CS4 there is one simple step:

  • Open the InDesign CS5.5 file in CS5.5 and export the file as an IDML (InDesign Markup Language) file, using the Export options from the File menu. Then IDML file will open in CS4.

If you don’t have Adobe InDesign CS5.5, we offer a InDesign down-saving service to help open the file into the CS version you need.
