Cannot Open File...may not support the fileformat or a plugin may be missing

  1. Default Cannot Open File...may not support the fileformat or a plugin may be missing

    Spent 3 days writing a project in ID and have just tried to open it, but get the above error message. I've opened it repeatedly after I started. There is only one tif placed in the project with 2 pages of copy. What gives? Can I save this? (have a couple of other basic questions, but obviously I need to get the file open before I ask). thanks any help appreciated.

    Benjy,

    If you want, you can zip or stuff the document and send it to me. I've had some success with resurrecting damaged ID files. (Click my name for the email address).

    Many many thanks Peter for any effort. I'll pipe it over

    Peter,

    As it now happened, I opened the file from the external hard drive (LaCie), which pulled up an empty screen, but inside ID. I then went to the file under recent files and it opened. Thanks again for your offer. After I get this doc in the mail, I'll post a couple of other odd ID items that are going on...
