    Adobe stopped supporting CS3 years ago. What exactly is it that is

    bringing this up now?

    Your other option, albeit more cost upfront, is to purchase a new license to CS6 perpetual license (no monthly payments as is the so-called Creative Cloud). Be aware that there really won't be future fixes for anything in CS6. Which until modern OS' cannot run CS6, is just fine with me.

    Mike,

     

    Sept. 30, Adobe released InDesign CS6 version 8.0.2 updater.

     

    This handles many bug fixes as covered at http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/release-note/indesign-cs6-2-release-no tes.html.

     

    While I have absolutely NO idea of what they will or won't be doing way down the road, it does show their committment to cleaning up CS 6.

    Hi Sandee--yes, they did release that update. And Adobe has written in the past that they will also update it for one more OS update. But as far as I know, that will be the last.

     

    Which in the scheme of things is all I could expect. If there are more fixes past that update, cool. If not, no worries. Unless a customer chooses to send me something in CC or requires me to use it, I'll cross that bridge then on an as-needed basis. I won't go month in, month out for an indefinite amount of time though. I don't see enough print-centric enhancements to warrant a monthly commitment. I do ePubs in other applications, so that isn't an enticement should Adobe flesh that feature out better.

     

    Don't think I have said so before. I've enjoyed your publications.

     

    Take care, Mike

    Why do you need a different program? Is there something you need that CS3 is not providing?
