I have just come from the dark ages of CS2 and moved onto CS4. On CS2 I did used to encounter an intermitant problem which I could work around which was if I opened an exiting eps file and made changes and did ctrl s (save) it would do it's little blue bar moving thingi and then disappear when done. I would then top cross the file and it would say 'Do you want to save changes?' So I would ctrl s again and the same thing. The way round this was save as and call it a different name. A pain but workable.
On CS4 now... I do the amendments, ctrl s top cross the file then note that it actually hasn't saved my changes!!! Massive problem and I am not a happy bunny. Am I just being dim?
What do you call the ages of 10, where I am still?
I presume you are keeping it as EPS. Did the same happen sometimes in CS2 with normal AI files?
I am wondering whether it may be a strange EPS issue that seems to have become worse from CS2 to CS4, and someone else may gave encountered it.
Can you explain what you mean by these phrases
I would then top cross the file.....
On CS4 now... I do the amendments, ctrl s top cross the file
I've never come across the expression "top cross the file" before
That is just a description of clicking the cross in the top right corner to close down the document.
