I've received a CD-ROM with - as my customer says - a complete advertising brochure made in InDesign: text, illustrations, etc. Just yesterday I downloaded and installed the latest InDesign CS trial version straight from Adobe site. And my computer sees nothing more than EPS files which are photographs, and several TIFF files with graphic background. I can not detect any file which would contain text.
(My customer - a branch of an international company - has not InDesign installed in their computers, they received the CD from another branch).

I suspect that text files were lost before burning the CD, but I'm not sure about it. Maybe my computer is "partly blind"? I will appreciate any assistance with regard to a content of a complete document in InDesign. What file formats should my computer see to make me happy?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Missing file extensions May 19, 2004

One of the favorite troublemakers: Mac & PC. Most graphics designers work on a Mac. Most translators work on a PC. When burning the CD-ROMs for PC, Mac users tend to forget to add the PC file extensions. (That's a check box in the conversion software.) Check for extensionless files and append the IND extension to any file large enough to be an InDesign publication...
