    InDesign Help

    I've got Cs4 on my main computer, but would like my students to be able to start doing some of the work, but they only have Cs2 on the backup laptop. I tried making it an Exchange file, but it came up and said that version of Cs2 doesn't support it.

    Any other ideas?


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Not to detour the thread, but I, too, have CS2, and it seems everyone else has CS4. Can I go directly to CS4 without losing what I've done in CS2? I don't want to have to buy 3 just to turn around and buy 4.

    Yes. I went from 2 to 4 just fine. You'll have to save all your files to the new version when you open them for the first time.

    Do they check for software updates from Adobe? Could just be an update issue. Otherwise, is it feasible to just upgrade them to CS4? Otherwise, I don't know that there's an alternative solution.

    Depends. Are you talking about page layouts, templates, presets? You shouldn't have any issues converting documents from CS2 to CS4. I think the only thing you might lose are some custom presets, like for printers or PDFs.

    You should be able to do this without any issues.
