That didn't really answer the question. For my work, which is quite specific, the interactive layout function was ideal for aligning image sets into a multi composite. The auto function never really worked well enough to rely on it and being able to position the images together in the light box of the interactive layout was ideal.... Until my organisation moved to CC 2014, the interactive layout plugin still worked for CS5 but it now does not seem to work for CC 2014. is this the case or do I not have the plugin correctly installed into the CC 2014 plugin location. The only plugin showing is 'generator'...whatever that is??
