a PC MACLAN Network:
Mapping PC File Types To The Mac®
Although PC MACLAN has already mapped a large number
of PC file extensions to the Macintosh®, new applications

you how to add new PC file types to PC MACLAN's file
extension mappings - in this case, Adobe® InDesign®
files. On the PC, these files have an "indd"
file extension. If you don't have InDesign, you can
