This April 2005 (CS2 Compatibility) update for Adobe® InDesign® CS 3.0.1 software provides key fixes that allow users to open InDesign Interchange (INX) format files exported from InDesign CS2 in InDesign CS. Other fixes cover the following areas: Text & Fonts, Styles, Document Setup, Bridge Workflow for use with InCopy CS, Graphics, Hyperlinks, Links, Printing, Page Items, Info Palette, PDF Export, Bookmarks, Layout, Conversion, Indexing, and others. For more information, refer to the Adobe InDesign CS 3.0.1 ReadMe file. To determine whether you have already installed this update, review this technical document.
For InDesign CS2 upgrade information, visit the Adobe Store.
Due to INX file format changes, older InDesign CS 3.0.1 INX files will not open in a version that has the InDesign CS 3.0.1 April 2005 (CS2 Compatibility) update applied. Before applying this update, open any of your existing CS INX files in a version of InDesign CS that does not have the April 2005 update applied, and save them out as INDD files so they can be opened after the update is installed.
This update enables the Save Back workflow only from InDesign CS2 to InDesign CS. InDesign 2.x will not open InDesign CS or InDesign CS2 INX files.
This April 2005 update includes fixes from the original InDesign CS 3.0.1 updates (posted in March 2004 and August 2004), as well as new fixes. Users who installed the original updates will need to install the April 2005 version to receive the new fixes. The original updates are no longer available separately.

Adobe InDesign CS includes a feature called Adobe Update Manager (AUM) that notifies you of updates as they become available. This feature also helps facilitate the download and installation of update files.
To access the Adobe InDesign CS 3.0.1 April 2005 (CS2 Compatibility) update through AUM, follow these steps:
1. Launch InDesign CS.
2. In the application window, choose Help > Updates.
3. In the Updates dialog box, select Adobe InDesign CS 3.0.1 April 2005 (CS2 Compatibility) update.
4. Click Continue. The update installer file will download to your local machine.
5. Choose Install Now and then follow the instructions to install the update.
Note: The update will instruct you to close all CS applications before installing. If you do not follow this instruction, you will need to restart InDesign before the update will take effect.
If you experience problems accessing the InDesign update via AUM, you can manually download and install the update:
1. Click the Download button on this page.
2. In the File Download window, click Save and then specify a location on your hard drive (for example, the desktop) to save the file.
3. Double-click the file on your hard drive to access the file's contents and run the installer.
AUM Install Later option: There is also an option to Install Later at step 5 of this process. Choosing this option will download the update installer icon to your local computer so that it can be run at a later time. You can also invoke the installer by choosing Help > Updates from within InDesign CS and then clicking Update Now.
Note: If you require access to the update installer file for archival or internal distribution purposes, follow the download path displayed in the Location field of the AUM download status dialog box during the download process. You may copy and paste the path name from the Location field for your reference.
Checking for updates automatically: InDesign CS can check for updates automatically if you choose Edit > Preferences > Updates, and then choose how long InDesign CS should wait before checking for updates.
