Default OSX 10.5 and CS3

Would like to upgrade to 10.5 but am just checking in to see if any other users out there are running it and CS3 successfully. Particularly InDesign and Acrobat.

Cheers,

N

No problems here. I am fully patched on the CS3 Suite (Production Premium) and am also fully patched up to 10.5.2 on the operating system.

I am running a Mac Pro with an Intel chip - dunno if that makes a difference. I briefly upgraded my old G5 to Leopard before getting this new beast and things appeared fine there too.

Let me know how it goes. I have been sitting here with the Leopard box leering at me for months now.

I want only smooth sailing, of course!

I did the same as you. Bought Leopard the instant it came out and then heard a few horror stories regarding the CS3 Suite (and other things) so resolved to wait for a patch. 10.5.1 came and went and I was too busy to try it so then waited for 10.5.2. Finally took the plunge and am quite pleased I did :-)

Thanks. You are very reassuring. Maybe when I get some time, I will take the plunge.

Still need to keep one Classic-capable machine around so I can deal with old PageMaker files. It will be one of the G4s, I guess. I would love to get down to three computers all told, but there always seems to be a need for the old ones.

Anyway, it is time. I have a nice fat external drive (750GB) and hope to set it up as (a) a boot drive, in one partition; and (b) a system backup. Lots of work to do.
