Rookie question here. My organization recently purchased a new copy of InDesign CS6 for me and one other employee. We did NOT purchase Creative Cloud subscriptions, but hard copy licenses. The software is working great and we love your product. The problem we are having is in regards to other people in our organization trying to open our newly created InDesign Documents (CS6) with their older version of the software (CS5). We do NOT have the option to upgrade the CS5 software licenses, so what are our options for those employees with CS5 to be able to view and edit documents created in CS6? I'm assuming there is a way to save the CS6 documents as older versions, correct? We all operate Windows PC's. I greatly appreciate your help.
@Todd – the only way saving back is exporting to IDML from CS6 and open the IDML in CS5.
If this is a reliable workflow is questionable. You have to proofread the opened IDML in CS5. I recommend to export to PDF from CS6 as well and compare the PDF with the opend IDML in CS5.
You can export your files as IDML, and your CS5 users will be able to open and edit them. This is not a safe and sustainable workflow, however. The conversion is not perfect; text will probably reflow, and and features new in CS6 that are used will be lost or flattened when the IDML files are opened in CS5.
