ebellit, CS5.5 files simply do not open in CS5. Not for you, not for anyone.
It is not uncommon for people to be confused about which version they are running when. And sometimes double-clicking the file in the Finder or Explorer does not open in the version you expect, and also the appearance of the file icon does not faithfully reflect what version saved the file. This leads to...mass confusion.
Thanks, all for the insight. DH just told me that we probably have the auto-update on the desktop but not in the laptop, so the desktop has 5.5 and I didn't even know it. As you can tell, technology isn't my forte.

I am having a similar plug-in issue as some of these people. I am a Mac user on CS4 & the file opens for EVERY other computer in our office but mine (all Macs on CS4 as well) so it is definitely not an issue with use of a newer version. I keep getting the following update plug-in error:
However no one else in my office has ever delt with this issue so I am unsure where to even start. I have CS5 on my laptop & would be able to edit from there, but of course that poses the issue of no one else being able to use the file once edited from there.
Any suggestions on where to start with the plug-ins? There are SO many!
You guys are all way too emotional Too funny! With that being said... what a rip-off this program is! Not compadible from version to version...LAME. Adobe is already over priced and they cannot for the life of them offer a good value for stock holders. So they suck you for every penny they can. Bad corporate tactics = shotty software.
It's fully compatible from one version to the other..it's just not backward compatible to all versions. In fact, CS5.5 is backward compatible to two versions, something no other pagelayout application can do.
