Use this Trick to Preview and Print Older Version Files
Photoshop certainly has a leg up on backwards compatibility. Not so with Illustrator or InDesign. How many times have you failed to open a file—even to do nothing more than preview or print—because it was created with a more recent version than you have? Don't fear, there is a workaround. First, launch InDesign. Choose File > Place, navigate to the Illustrator or InDesign file that you want to print, select it, and click Open. Click on the page to place the file. You can either print this file or export it as a PDF (File > Export) for easy viewing the next time!
