What is an INDS file?
An INDS file is a snippet file created by InDesign, a professional page layout program. It contains a subset of an InDesign document, such as a page item or a group of page items. INDS files are stored in an XML format and are used to share and reuse portions of a document.
Snippets can be created by selecting one or more objects in InDesign and then dragging them to the desktop. They may also be exported by selecting File → Export within InDesign.
INDS files were used by older versions of InDesign and have since been replaced by .IDMS files with the release of InDesign CS4. Even though Adobe replaced INDS files, you can still open them with InDesign.
How to open an INDS file
You can open INDS files with Adobe InDesign in Windows and macOS by selecting File → Place.... You can also drag and drop an IDMS file into an open InDesign document to place the snippet in the document.
