How to Open InDesign CS6 in CS2

To be able to open an Adobe InDesign CS6 file in CS2 there are a few steps you need to do:

  • Open up the file in InDesign CS6 (or CC) and save the file as an IDML file, using the Save As or Export options from the file menu.
  • Then in InDesign CS4 open this IDML file and export it to an .inx file.
  • Now open the INX file in CS3 and export to a CS3 inx file and will open up in InDesign CS2 .

We do offer a InDesign down-saving service if you don’t have Adobe InDesign CC or CS6, CS4 and CS3 to help open the file into the CS2 version.
