Blind open and IDML-export
(script for trying to open a damaged InDesign document)

Script by Martin Fisher

The source is here.

  1. Run the script and select the damaged file in the dialog dialog box.
  2. The script opens the file in the background (ie, without on-screen display) and exports it to IDML.
  3. Finally, open the IDML-file in InDesign.
