    Down saving from CS4 to CS3?

    time18 Level 1

      We ahve a supplier working in CS4 and we work in CS3 (oh, the pressure of ressesion!).

      We have asked for the file to be downsaved, is this possible from CS4 to CS3 as either .ai file or EPS?

      They are working on a PC platform, we are working on Macs, all fonts will be outlined.

       

      Thanks for any responses.

          Shouldn't be a problem... i haven't tried CS4 to CS3 on a serious level but used to do CS3 to CS2 pretty often. No one ever complained

            Save as and CS3 can be selected by version.

             

            AI format is best.

             

            A key difference is the multiple artboards feature in CS4. Extra artboards get converted to guides in CS3.

              Not exactly if you open the file after it has been saved back to CS 3 in CS 4 you see the guides if you open it in CS 3 you will get the page that is selected in the find usually artboard one though you can change this in the open dialog.

               

              If you place you can also choose which artboard you want but you cannot place all of them at one time.

               

              If they are using multiple artboards I sincerely urge you to upgrade.
