    Can you work in Illustrator on a mac then email that to yourself and work on it on a PC?

    yep. while I was doing my HNC we worked on Macs, but I only have a PC at home. Transfered between the two just fine. All I had to do was make sure I had the right fonts, (made easy because the macs had lovely Font Book).

    Same goes for the rest of the Adobe suite, and most other programs I'm sure.

    Yep as Becky says just ensure you have the fonts, or if you're at a later stage in the developments then outlining the fonts gets round that issue anyway.

    I think I once hit an issue saving as an .AI file because of different versions of Illustrator, so might be safest to save as an .EPS file, but best to test it first in anycase.

    Ya I've had the issue too, and it's a much bigger issue inInDesign (good ol InDesign Exchange formats).

    I usually just save my AIs as CS3 and make an EPS copy as greg mentioned to be on the safe side

    cs4 to cs3 should be fine, I used it at uni and it worked spot on..

    it'll be fine in illustrator. I've not had any problems going between the two

    A bit of a work around but if you do get stuck and need to open a cs3 on a mac with only cs2 installed. Open the .ai file .eps file or pdf file in preview, re-save from preview as a pdf. If it was an editable file when saved it will (should) open as such in cs2 :D

    The only issue Ive ever had with providing work for a PC user is the notorious CMYK image issue. :mad:

    It didn't open when I just saved it as Ai CS4 but worked once it was converted to CS3
