I'm an experinced user of Adobe products. Not professional in any way, but have set up a number of newsletters for others as well as many forms, business product, etc. I used to work for a couple of local printers and learned on the job. I have never had a problem with versions or platforms (working on both Mac and PC) with the exception of the change from CS2 to CS5 here at home. Not really a big problem for me. Now, I create a school newsletter and the school just purchased the Creative Suite for my office computer, the latest and greatest. I own CS5, the school owns CS5.5. You can probably guess the problem I'm having. I cannot open the CS5.5 file on my CS5 program at home.
I just don't have the money to upgrade at this time. The problem for me is that I store the file on a thumb drive and transport it back and forth from Home to Work. If I forget to export, I can't do any work at home and get behind.
Is there an aftermarket fix? Can I go back a version at work? How about a script that does it automatically when I save? Looking for any suggestions. I just hate to rely on my mind to remember everytime, esp. when I have to save often in a busy office environment.
Ok. That's kind of what I expected. I downloaded the trial version and was able to complete my project. I did try to export. The graphics don't show. So the question is do I need to relink the images every time. Any tips?
That was the problem. They were there, just not properly linked. I used the one I completed in CS6 trial version (after preflight). When I exported that one and opened it in CS5 all was good. I think I will make the upgrade as soon as I can afford it, but at least now I can make the system work for my needs. Thank you for your help!
