The ending INDD denotes the standard format of Adobe InDesign.
Adobe InDesign is a DTP (Desktop Publishing) solution for creating print templates and layouts for print products such as flyers, catalogs or brochures. The INDD files therefore contain text, images, layers, fonts and the layout.
The INDD format is proprietary and closed, so very few programs can handle it. Adobe InDesign can also save more compatible formats, such as PDF.
Therefore, it is recommended to make the files available in one of these formats, if possible. Or, if this is not possible, use the demo version of Adobe InDesign to convert the file to another format.
QuarkXPress requires the Markzware ID2Q Xtension to read the format.
Most often resolving problems with opening INDD files is very simple. Just install an appropriate program that supports such files. All of the listed programs support INDD files, but may vary in offered function and purpose. Some programs may be capable only of viewing contents of INDD files or offer file conversion options, but may not be capable of editing such files.
It is possible that although a compatible program has been installed on user’s system, it is not used by the system to open it. This may happen because no default application was associated with this type of files. To associate INDD files with given application, select "Open with" from drop-down menu (accessed by right-clicking on the file). Then select from the list the program or application you want to be used to open this type of file. If the Adobe InDesign applications is not on the list, select "Browse" option in order to manually locate the directory where Adobe InDesign has been installed.
Sometimes problems with opening INDD files may not lie with the application itself, but can arise due to other causes, such as:
