How are you transitioning the files from CS2 to Cs6?
Are you opening them in Cs6?
Have you tried exporting the CS2 file to .inx and open that in CS6 (Not sure if CS6 can read inx files?)
What formatting is being lost? Is it all styles, or certain styles? Is it paragraph or character styles?
Can you please post a detailed report of your issue and it might be easier for people to help you
Thank you for the quick response Mr. Tyson and Mr. Levine!
We are currently trying to convert from CS2 to CS6 and are finding challenges in keeping some of our styles.
For instance, in a cutline with a photo credit, the style will not hold once it is exported into rich text format...This is the way we have been doing it for YEARS!!!
Our cutline style is Helvetica Neue Regular with a 10 point font size and 12 point leading, justified type. The reporter's photo credit is Helvetica Neue Italic with a 9 point font size and 9 point leading that is JUSTIFIED RIGHT!!!
In exporting using CS6, the photo credit does not hold it's style. It is Helvetica Neue 9 / 9 and aligned right but it separates each word on a single line.
I would like to send an attachment so you can "see" what I am trying to explain but I am not finding a way to do that......
OK, there are foced line breaks after each word in the second photo credit. I don't know how they got there, but I don't think ID would add them on its own.
You are placing RTF exported from the CS2 files? Is that correct? Wha,t exactly is the workflow here, what are you tring to accomplish?
ID 6 is replacing spaces with line breaks. NO line breaks were in the original ––– only spaces. We are exporting CS6 files. The CS2 files are correct. Workflow is InDesign 6 document exported to a server as rich text then placed back into an InDesign CS6 document. We need the placement process to look like the first cutline.
Bear with me, please. I need a bit more clarification.
It sounds like the only involvement with CS2 here is that the styles were used formerly in CS2, but all of the text now is originating in CS6. You are not trying to reuse text from CS2. You are not, for example, using a template that was creating in CS2. Is that correct?
Have you tried recreating this style from scratch? How did you get the styles from CS2 to CS6?
If InDesign was replacing spaces with a soft return (forced line break) then it would do it for every space in the document, not just a single line.
There's something else at play here. As the first example is not the same text as the example with the incorrect cutline.
It's hard to tell what's going on with 2 samples of different text.
Hi Peter and Eugene,
Peter first: Yes, the only involvement is the first example cutline was created and exported in CS2. The second cutline was created and exported in CS6. The editor first tried using his CS2 cutline in CS6 but found it did not export correctly. SO...he then created the CS6 cutline document from scratch. Yes, all the text is now originating in CS6. Just for kicks, I created a cutline from scratch and exported it into a CS6 created page. It is still recognizing the photo credit as a forced line break. I am attaching another example using the very same cutline. The first is the problem child. The second cutline I corrected myself. As part of layout and design, we do not have time to stop and correct each photo credit we have to place on a page...there has to be a fix
Attached is the same cutline for reference...I did it myself and made sure there were NO forced line breaks.
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!! My publisher wants us all to convert to CS6 soon.
The InDesign file is "Brian's Cutline Example Page"... https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public/InDesign%20Help
