I have received a project with multiple .idml files. (7 in all.) Checking the File types "Adobe InDesign CS4 CC-IDML" is listed, though as I understand it, there should be an CS5 version out there of IndDesign.

So when I try to import said .idml files, they are marked as reference files only.

Can someone suggest a solution for this, please.

Roy

The solution was to reinstall Windows. Apparently there was something wrong with my installation, as other programs also were affected.

I am seeing these posts way after the issue was solved, but the other common cause is an un-ticked box at "Process unsupported file versions". Ticking it usually results in IDML files being loaded as "Translatable" rather than "Reference".

It can be found here:
Options > File Types > Adobe InDesign CS4-CC IDML > Common > Process unsupported file versions

Hope it might be helpful in case anyone else faces issues with it.
