      Been looking for a decent book template for IDD CS6 for a while. Not proficient at designing my own yet so needed something I could work with quickly in the here and now. Genuinely appreciate this.

      InDesign .indl file will not open in Adobe InDesign 5.5, and of course, neither will v.6 .indd file.
      Could you please create and send download that will work in v. 5.5.

    • Graphire on January 19, 2014

      Hi D.Stall, there have been issues regarding opening idml from CS6 to 5.5. Solution is to update your 5.5 with the latest available update from Adobe. When CS6 was released an additional update was made to CS5.5 to allow reading of CS6 IDML files. HTH. Thanks.
