I work with CC at the office but have CS5 at home. Yearly, for a specific event, I have to bring files home with me and work on them at night. I have done this before with no issues. Right now I am trying to open the idml files and i'm just getting the spinning beach ball and a window that says "open 1 documents" with a status bar underneath. Sometimes the blue status bar appears and just gets stuck, and sometimes the bar doesn't appear at all. I always have to force quit.
This is a yearly pamphlet, and last year's files were very similar and worked fine. This year, there are a couple of new links. I am trying to figure out if it's something with those. Seems like a pdf link (let's call this pdf1), regardless of what images are used in pdf1 originally, (for example, a small ad was created in Illustrator using a linked .psd image and some added text, and the whole ad was saved as pdf1), would not cause any issues. I have never had any issues with placed pdf files no matter how many elements were used to create them. I wouldn't need that psd file, would I?
Any insight would be appreciated. I'm at a loss and these have to be worked on late at night and coming into the office is not an option.
Download the trial and work with that. It will get you through the next 30 days.
Trial for CC? I can't run that on my home computer, unfortunately.
