I'm on a MacBookPro with a Retina screen. InDesign CS6 looks horrible, and CC looks great. However my designers are all using CS6.
My layouts are pretty basic, text and graphics, no fancy moves, no CC specific features.
Wondering how realistic it is to go back and forth from CC to CS6 and back to CC using the IDML export feature. I know it is possible, just wondering what issues I may encounter in a real world scenario.
IDML was never intended for round trip workflows. There’s simply no way to
assure you that issues won’t pop up that may, among other things, include
I understand IDML is only a backward solution, and I would have to re-import back into CC each time.
re: reflowing text - What kind of issues should I look out for? Any particular text formatting I should avoid?
Besides the reflowing text, any other common formatting issues to avoid/look out for?
The text engines change from one version to the next so long entries of text may flow differently. Any new features you use will be lost or badly mangled.
If you think it’s worth it go ahead and do it, but I’m advising against it.
