Photoshop: Pantone + Libraries from CS6 incompatible with older software

Al crear una imagen en Photoshop6, con un canal/tinta plana de las librerías con el signo "+" provoca que las versiones anteriores de Photoshop y al menos de Illustrator, no puedan abrir los archivos. Posiblemente con Indesign pase lo mismo.
Concretamente, en los casos que hemos encontrado, la tinta directa estaba creada con la biblioteca de colores "Pantone+ Solid coated", no sabemos si viene por defecto. Esto provoca que si hay una imagen guardada así, y vinculada en un documento Illustrator Cs6 y este guardado como Illustrator Cs5 para la gran mayoría que todavía no lo tiene, el programa de un mensaje de que "el archivo no se puede leer".
Si la imagen la intentas abrir con Photoshop 5, al menos te advierte que utiliza una biblioteca no soportada, pero tampoco te la deja abrir.
La solución pasa por volver abrir la imagen en Photoshop6 y cambiar la biblioteca a"Pantone Solid coated" sin el +, pero solo lo podrán hacer con Cs6.
En mi modesta opinión, creo que esto puede ser una bola de nieve de cara al futuro.
Esperando que sirva de ayuda...

> Librarys + Incompatibility with CS5 and CS6 earlier by libraries +

By creating an image Photoshop6 with a channel / spot color libraries with the "+" causes earlier versions of Photoshop and Illustrator at least, can not open. Possibly the same thing happens with Indesign.
Specifically, in the cases we have found direct ink was created with the color library "Pantone Solid Coated +" does not know whether the default. This causes that if an image is saved as well, and linked in an Illustrator document CS6 and this saved as Illustrator Cs5 for the vast majority still do not, the program message "The file is unreadable."
If you try to open the image with Photoshop 5, at least warns you to use a library is not supported, but also leaves you open.
The solution is to re-open the image in Photoshop6 and change the library to "Pantone Solid Coated" without the +, but they can only do with CS6.
In my humble opinion, I think this may be a snowball in the future.
Hoping that it will help ...

That is correct - you are using libraries that the older applications do not have.
You need to copy those new library files to the older application, then the older application can use them. We did make sure that the new library files are compatible with older versions of the applications -- you just have to copy the files over.

There are no great options when dealing with new content that older versions just don't have. And unfortunately older applications weren't good at recovering when they encountered library references that they did not know about. (we've tried to improve that in CS6)

Thanks!
But I think that many people save and export documents from cs6 to cs5 and then not verify that work from CS5. Big mistake but quite common. No one, or little people keep Cs5 does have the CS6. (I keep up to CS3!)
