Save for Older Versions of Illustrator

Illustrator is not backwards compatible, which means that you cannot save an Illustrator CS2 file into an older version such as 10, 9, or earlier. The best way to create a document that can be read by an older version of Illustrator is to choose the Save As command in the File menu (Command-Shift-S [PC: Control-Shift-S]). Click Save and from the Illustrator Options dialog, you can choose from older versions of the program in the Version pop-up menu. Be aware that several functions—notably type—will not transfer well from CS2 into earlier versions. (Note: If you attempt to open an Illustrator CS2 file in Illustrator 10, you’ll get a dialog saying that the file was created in a newer version of Illustrator, but it does give you the option to import the file. Opening a file in this manner does not maintain the CS2 formatting as well as using the Export option.)
