This is a work in progress.
Some of these have already been done,
and some have been done but were unplanned;
but these should probably all be put down here just for the record:
- Whether everything actually even runs
- Whether CS6 ME can understand CS6 CJK files
- Whether CS6 ME preserves CS6 CJK layout
- Whether CS6 CJK can understand CS6 ME files
- Whether CS6 CJK preserves CS6 ME layout
- Whether dumbed-down (i.e., non-CJK, non-ME) CS6 can understand CS6 ME files
- Whether dumbed-down CS6 preserves ME layout
- How much CJK layout is preserved in dumbed-down (i.e., non-CJK, non-ME) CS6
- Whether OV can be used as the IME (even for ME)
Anyone who objects to my tests is aware of neither the existence of the province of Xinjiang in China nor the existence of the City of Toronto in Ontario, Canada
and therefore is not qualified to speak on matters related to multilingual compatibility.
And if Adobe doesn’t actually allow me to install all three varieties of CS6 to do a proper evaluation then the evaluation fails.
Multilingual support (that are not covered by compatibility)
- Whether it is possible to specify “Chinese” and/or “Hebrew” in each evaluated version of CS6
- Whether it is possible to differentiate between different varieties of Chinese, and if so, which varieties
Anyone who objects to my tests does not know the difference between languages and writing systems
and therefore is not qualified to speak on matters related to language support in any piece of software.
- Whether page contents are messed up when deleting single pages (as opposed to spreads)
- Rotating the view (as opposed to the actual canvas)
- Acknowledging the fact that inkjet printers are in fact CMYK printers (and not mythical “RGB printers”)
Specific production problems
- Tabbed sections in brochures or booklets
- Booklets comprising different-sized pages
- Reversed verso-recto handling (“Japanese” binding)
- Black-and-white or grayscale colour space
