    Told the designer I had to have a CS3 or earlier file...I got a CS5.

    It's too late to get in touch with her tonight and I need to get this banner ready before she'll be at work tomorrow.

    Anybody out there who can help tonight PM me.

    Thanks.

    have you tried to create a new, blank doc first, then place the CS5 file into it? I've had some luck with that in the past but onyl from CS4 down.

    can you download a trial copy of CS5 and run it for the next month?

    Three people offered but nobody has had time to get the file to me, I guess.

    I'll try the trial version. i just hate doing that because I've had trial versions of software upgrades disable the version I already had forcing me to buy the upgrade after the trial period.

    I've got CS5 if you still need a conversion... at home and at work so I can get it back to you pretty quickly.

    Sorry Pat, I only got your email at 11.30pm, must be the time delay as I am in New Zealand. I just emailed it through now if its not too late.

    Look, I expected you to sit by the computer and wait all day for me to email you the file. The nerve of you trying to run a business instead of bowing to my needs.

    Seriously, thanks for the offer and for sending the file. The CS5 demo I downloaded has done nothing but made me want to spend $199 on an upgrade instead of an anniversary gift.

    :cool1: I have only had cs5 for a few days, but from what I see it looks pretty good, I doubt you will regret the upgrade

    I've had success converting EPS files from newer versions to PDF then placing them into Illustrator and flattening them - using the convert text to outlines option.

    CS3 to CS5 is definitely worth the two bills. Skipping the anniversary gift might cost you more than the two bills in the end.

    I was thinking eventually she'd get over it and I'd still have the Illustrator upgrade until my neighbor pointed out that if I upgraded Illustrator she might upgrade who she's sleeping with.

    Illustrator can wait.
