Default InDesign Interchange Format

It has been the conventional wisdom that exporting an InDesign CS document to InDesign Interchange format and reopening the .inx file is a good way of cleaning up an InDesign document and minimizing its file size.

Until this morning, the only known problem with this was that spread-wide guides on the master page would only apply to the left page in the re-opened document.

This morning, I have discovered a rather more serious limitation. If you have a text wrap set up as Detect Edges wrap and you customize it (by adding/deleting/moving points on the wrap) all your customization is lost by the export/re-open process.

I, of course, discovered this the hard way.
