What is an INX file?

An INX file is a document exported by Adobe InDesign in XML format. It contains information that completely describes an InDesign (.INDD) file, including pages, page content, text frames, colors, margins, guides, etc.

More Information

Some of these features include footnotes, SING glyphlets, tracked changes, anchored objects, imported PSD files with layers, and object styles.
