Can't share from Adobe Comp CC on the iPad (which is the whole reason I signed up for a trial)
Sharing to InDesign causes Comp CC to Crash! The whole reason I signed up for the InDesign trial is to see how it works with Comp. Please fix or extend my trial until this has ben handled!
The issue has been fixed in the latest release of InDesign – InDesign 2021.
Please update to this new version of InDesign to get the fix.

Indesign 15.02, Comp on ipad pro 3.05.16. Is Adobe abandoning Comp files cannot be opened in Indesign? Likewise in Illustrator, best you can do is a PDF that can be edited, but that only gets you half the way.
So will it it be fixed, is there a timeline, or is the community wasting their time asking?
Still not fixed. I send an email at the beginning of 2020. Can’t open file in Indesign (2019 or 2020). Does not work with idml file. Why is this still not fixed!! The app Adobe Comp is great but is of no use if you can’t open files in Indesign on your desktop/laptop.
I see so much comment on the internet about this and can’t believe Adobe has still not fixed this problem.

This is an old an nagging problem. Along with the line running through type. Can't this be fixed?
Having this same issue. No errors reported. Comp on iPad confirms sent, but nothing happens on the desktop. Went from being seamless last summer to being useless.

Im having the exact same issue.
Back when i started using comp everything was working smoothly.
then all of a sudden. the ipad (adobe comp) reported the file was sent. but nothing opened on the computer.
back then i tried everything (This was in 2019 november'ish). testing with a Windows computer and a Mac laptop with up to date installations of the adobe package.
i was searching the internet thin for maybe a hint of a solution. but nothing was found :(
in the end i just gave up.
then now in 2020 i decided to see if i could solve the anoying issue once and for all.
and to my amazement i were able to send to all other programs than indesign, witch is the only program i need it to work for.
but atleast indesign opens now. with a the message attached to this comment. i have tried everything to solve this but with no luck.
only thing i dident try is reinstalling my computer completely. i am not willing to do that !

With InDesign (ver. 15) I've getting this pop-up: "...idml won't open..." Comp's share with Illustrator and Photoshop works fine.

I have the same problem. It's very frustrating.
Can´t share from Adobe Comp CC on the iPad to InDesign
Having the same issue as everyone else...have absolutely no way to get my work from Adobe Comp to InDesign, Illustrator, or Photoshop . Kind of a necessary feature...
sending files from Comp to Indesign has not worked for a few months now. When do you plan to fix that? There is no answer as to whether this will be fixed at all
Still not working sending comp to InDesign. It seems odd that Adobe put so much development and promotion effort on this flow from Comp to InDesign but it doesn't work. Have spoken to an expert trainer at linked in learning on this and they are at a loss as well. Please get a fix for us.
great concept but useless unless it works all the time - otherwise I'm wasting my already tight schedule. Sometimes I can get it to open in illustrator othe rtimes not - and more importantly never in InDesign which would be more valuable.
Would really like a solution please.

Yes, same error code for me too!
Yup, same here!
Hi..My adobe company app on my iPad won’t send and open file in photoshop?...any help??....adobe comp says sent but the photoshop app is not receiving the file for some reason..

i have the same problem and receive the attached error
I love using Comp to lay things out. But it's useless if I can't open it in InDesign. Work this out!!
I need to send from Comp on my iPad to Indesign on my iMac every day and can't do it. Costs me several hours per week. Please prioritize this fix.
Steve W. suggested that I add my comments to this reporting thread as well. I am using Adobe Comp on the iPad. I can easily upload the Comp file to Photoshop and Illustrator, but not to InDesign. Instead, I get an error message from InDesign saying "Cannot open the file 'Project.idml'. Adobe InDesign may not support the file format, a plug-in that supports the file format may be missing, or the file may be open in another application." I know that InDesign does indeed support .idml files, and also I do not currently have the file open in another application. Presumably, that only leaves the possibility that a required plug-in is missing inside of InDesign, or there is some programming glitch inherent to InDesign. I'm hoping that this issue can be resolved soon by the InDesign engineering team.
