.inx File Extension

Developer: Adobe Systems
File type: Adobe InDesign Interchange File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .inx. Files with the file extension .inx can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .inx files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .inx file?

The INX file extension was developed by Adobe Systems and the files that are saved using this extension are known as Adobe InDesign Interchange Files, categorized as Page Layout Files. INX files are the documents that Adobe InDesign exports in XML format and they contain descriptions of an InDesign (.INDD) file which includes page content, colors, guides, pages, text frames, margins, etc. Most of the InDesign CS2 files that are exported to the INX format can be accessed with the use of InDesign CS. In fact, the InDesign CS recognizes all page contents and formatting except for the features that are available in InDesign CS2 alone such as the footnotes, tracked changes, imported PSD files with layers, SING glyphlets, anchored objects and object styles. When exporting an InDesign document in the INX format, users must choose File→Export first and then select InDesign Interchange found in either the Formats menu (Mac) or the File Type menu (Windows) before saving it.

how to open a .inx file?

Launch a .inx file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .inx file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .inx files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .inx file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .inx file will open the correct application.

Adobe InDesign CS6

Adobe InDesign CS6

The Adobe InDesign CS6 is a desktop publishing application software developed by Adobe. CS6 features the Adaptive Design Tools for faster and easier creation of page layouts for tablets, prints and various other devices. The latest version features split window, grayscale preview and access to recently used fonts. Users have four new favorite design tools to choose from – Content Collector tools, Linked content, Liquid Layout and Alternate Layout. The Content Collector tools allow the user to grab objects and texts from an existing layout to a new layout. Linked Content allows changes made to the parent object to be synchronized within the children objects. The Liquid Layout allows the user to adapt content when an alternative layout is created for a different device. An Alternative Layout duplicates a page within the same document but with different orientation and page size. The Adobe InDesign CS6 supports both Windows and MAC OS.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .inx files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .inx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
