    yes, we have been using it for a couple of years already. The only thing i can think of is that i recently intalled a trial version of XMPIE a variable data program which is attached to indesign. i didn't like it so i uninstalled it. i think that from then it stoped working.

    Ok then. I reccomend updating CS2. If its not the latest version. The updater tool should be in the installation directory.
    Though  XMPIE  is unninstalled, there are probably many registary settings insaltalled. I reccomend downloading a registry program or an alternate unninstaller.

How to type telugu in indesign cs3


Are you using a Windows machine? If so, you'll probably need to make sure that you have a Telugu keyboard configuration in place:

  1. Open the Start Menu and click "Control Panel." Open "Regional and Language Options" and then click "Change keyboards or other input methods." Click the "Change keyboards" button.
  2. Click "Add" to add a new input language. Scroll down the list until you find "Telugu." Click the "+" symbol to open up the sub-menu. Open the keyboard sub-menu. Check the box for the keyboard layout of your choice: Hindu Traditional or Telugu. Click "OK" when done and click "OK" once more to close the language and region window.
In InDesign, you should be able to change the 'Language' of particular text from the Character palette. This option is at the bottom of the palette but I don't know if there is an option for Hindu or Telugu.

Windows run doesn't keep my work history


you have to physically save any work
save the history to a usb drive in case you have computer failure

Plug the flash drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.

Wait for Windows to recognize the system.


Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.


Open the drive on your computer.

Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using


Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.


Transfer files to the flash drive.

Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.


Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.

Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.


Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."

Close the windows and directory locations when finished.


Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.


Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.


Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.

Close the windows and files when finished


hope this helps

Connection from flash file to another file


If you are trying to create a text link that users can click on to send them to another page, then a single-click of the mouse is all you need. Here's what you do:
Text Link:
1) Use the Text Tool (T) to type some text.
2) Highlight all of the text and then open the Properties tab and next to the icon that looks like a chain link, enter the absolute (exact web address) of the file where you want the users to go.
3) Then, in the Target box, choose how you want the document to open. Use "_blank" to have it open in a new window, or "_self" to have it open in the current window.
Note: Certain web browsers will block the content if you are having the user download a document or zip file. Be sure to notify your users of this so they can take action to allow the file through.

Translate a pagemaker file into indesign


This is from Adobe InDesign (CS3) Help module:
Convert PageMaker documents InDesign can convert document and template files from Adobe PageMaker 6.0 and later. When you open a PageMaker file, InDesign converts the original file information to native InDesign information. InDesign files are saved with an .indd filename extension.
For more information, see the PageMaker Conversion Guide (PDF) at www.adobe.com/go/learn_pmconv. Before opening the document in InDesign, you may want to do the following:
  • If the PageMaker file or its linked graphics are located on a network server, floppy disk, or removable drive, it may not open as expected if an interruption in data transfer occurs. To prevent data transfer problems, copy documents and their links to the hard disk, preferably in the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored, before opening them in InDesign.
  • You may want to use Save As in PageMaker to clear unnecessary hidden data.
  • To ensure that all links are maintained, copy all linked files to the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored.
  • Make sure that all necessary fonts are available in InDesign.
  • Repair broken graphics links in the PageMaker publication.
  • If you have a problem converting a large PageMaker document, convert portions of the PageMaker file separately to isolate the problem.
If you cannot open a corrupt PageMaker document in PageMaker, try opening it in InDesign. InDesign can recover most documents that PageMaker cannot open.
