Hi all...


A fairly simple question: Do anybody know whether InDesign CC will retain the same file format from InDesign CS6, so you can open files made in both application. Say you subscribe to CC and work for somebody who one have CS6? Will you did be able to use files without any issues?

    No. You will still need to export to .idml to save back to CS6, as far as I know. CC subscribers, I have been told, will also have access to CS6 as part of their subscription, so that they can work in CS6 to collaborate, if necessary.

    InDesign is a database. It ALWAYS changes format when a new major version is released. This is nothing new.


    The good news is that in InDesign CC if you save as IDML, you can save backwards as far as InDesign CS4.
