Detecting language please wait for.......
I am trying to generate an IDML file from trados - an IDML source file went in and I can see the copy is all correct in trados but when I try to save the target as an IDML, there's chunks of copy missing. any ideas how I can solve it and what it might be?
Hello Chris Barella .
I'm wondering whether the missing text is locked and/or hidden within the layers of the Indesign file
Studio only extracts this information if the settings are correct...
Maybe another user with more experience in InDesign files maybe able to shed more light on this.
Hi Steven, thanks for the advice but it doesn't work unfortunately. The text still hasn't come across. I can't imagine what's causing it.
All the best
Hi Chris Barella ,
Have you tried recreating the project (using the correct settings?)
Not yet Steven but it's a good shout, that was going to be my next move. We have worked around it by importing the copy from Excel but it's obviously not ideal.
Hi Chris Barella
We need to know a bit more in order to help you. Which version of InDesign was used to generate the idml? Which version of Studio are you using?
If it's possible, could you share an idml or a part of an idml where this problem occurs?
I am totally in the dark as what could be causing your issue, but one way to work around is to export text frames to icml (InCopy) and import them into Studio. That is a pretty neat process which BTW saves you converting your indd to idml AND you can select which stories to export, if that is required.
If you reply, be so kind and use the "@" and the recipient's name, so that we get an alert...
Thanks for that Daniel, it is CC 2019 & Studio 2019 that we're using. Unfortunately, I am loathe to share an example of the file as it is sensitive information at the moment.
I will try the steps you suggest but am still concerned that it should have happened in the first place as I would like to get to the bottom of it.
