- Adobe question
With their move to rental only SW, they’ll probably kill off the piracy market. Currently you can install a copy of their complete DTP suite and some nifty SW to make it think it’s licensed when it’s not, but I suspect that will all end with their new usage model.Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
Acrobat? CS? Illustrator? Photoshop? I haven’t used Adobe products in anger for some years, but I can remember spending ages trying to match fonts so that line breaks and such matched up because some dimwit hadn’t provided a set of fonts for a job. Fonts have long been an issue in repro, what with there being so many different versions from different type founders, so matching a font if it hasn’t been supplied is a nightmare. I’ve still got a copy of my old font folder from ten or twelve years ago, and I had around three hundred fonts in there, many just different versions of one font, like Garamond, or Gill, for example.Posted 4 years ago
Having older versions of whatever app you’re using isn’t going to help you any either, so I’m afraid you’re going to have to bite the bullet on this one, grit your teeth and take it like a man! 😉Rockape63Member
any thoughts on how to get the best out of adobe. We are using version 5 which allows us to manipulate documents, but having trouble including documents from newer versions without having font issues etc.
Is the only way to spend money on the newer versions, or is there a solution for a cheapskate??Posted 4 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
The only piece of Adobe software which seems to have backwards compatibility problems is InDesign in my experience. Illustrator is a bit dodgy, but can at least backsave to old versions easily. InDesign can’t.
You basically have to be on the same version of InDesign as all the people in the chain that need to edit the document. For printers, you can get away with exporting it all to PDF instead of relying on them to have InDesign.Posted 4 years ago
