I've been trying to open the alignment project, but I'm getting the following message:

WinAlign Message
For this type of project, you need to install a filter plug-in for InDesign CS2/CS4 Interchange.

I do have the filter in my SDL Trados 2007, with WinAlign I checked the web and found this:

I did what they suggested, although they do not mention WinAlign explicitly, and it didn't cure my problem. I can open the *.inx.ttx files in TagEditor. I also tried to fix the Indesign/InDesign string in the txt files, but no no avail.

I'd be grateful for any advice...

Many thanks,

Use ttx for alignment Sep 16, 2010

Create a ttx file from each source and target. This will obviously create monolingual ttx files, but you can easily align them afterwards.
In fact when using WinAlign it is always advisable to prepare either rtf or ttx as intermediate format, as WinAlign is doing exactly the same, so you save work and problems when you prepare before creating an alignment project.
