How to use the Markzware MarkzTools Menu in the MarkzTools for InDesign plugin. This data conversion software can open InDesign CS5–CS6 in a higher InDesign version, including InDesign CC and CC 2014:
Which version of InDesign?
You may not know whether the file you’re trying to open was last saved in InDesign CC, InDesign CC 2014, InDesign CS6, or etc. By default the Enable menu is set to All Higher Version Documents. With this setting, you do not have to know the specific version of InDesign used to create or most recently modify the file. If you select InDesign CC 2014 Only, then only CC 2014 files will be available for conversion. The same applies to the InDesign CC Only setting.
TIP! – For the smoothest experience, leave Enable set to All Higher Version Documents and just open your InDesign files. Select the file you want to convert and click Open. MarkzTools will now convert your file. That’s it!
Using InDesign’s Standard Open (Command-O) Option
If you try and open a higher version InDesign file, InDesign will post an alert stating it cannot open the higher version document.
Click OK to continue.
Afterwards MarkzTools will prompt you.
When MarkzTools for InDesign is loaded, it will attempt to intercept files flagged as un-openable due to being a higher version. A dialog similar to the above screen cap should appear. Clicking OK begins the conversion process. That’s it!
