    As long as you're both on the same vesion of InDesign and using OpenType
    fonts, there should be no issues at all.

    And if you're not in the same version? I'm a newbie, too, and am trying to open a doent from InDesign 2 Mac version with CS2 Windows. I always get this error message," . . . . may not support the file format, a plug-in that supports the file format may be missing, or the file may be open in another application."

    How did the file get from the designer with Mac InDesign 2 to you? Via email? Could be getting mangled in email transit. Maybe the person knows to zip or sit compress it before sending to you? That will survive the emailing better. Is the Mac user using a legitimate copy of InDesign?

    Just guessing with you,
