Adobe Creative suite and Mountain Lion (Mac OS X 10.8)

Adobe Creative Suite  applications are expected to work great on Mac OS X 10.8, a.k.a Mountain Lion. The Adobe website reports:

Adobe and Apple have worked closely together to test Adobe® Creative Suite® 5, 5.5 and CS6 editions and individual products for reliability, performance and user experience when installed on Intel® based systems running Mac OS X Mountain Lion (v10.8). Earlier versions of Adobe Photoshop® (CS3 and CS4) software were also tested with Mountain Lion and there are currently no known issues.

As with any new release of an operating system, there may be unexpected issues that arise that were not discovered during testing.

See complete details on the Creative Suite FAQ page.


In Mountain Lion, Apple has included a feature called Gatekeeper, that makes it safer to download and install application from the internet. Adobe has added the Gatekeeper signing requirements to the currently shipping applications.

    I’m about to invest in a new mac with Yosemite as the OS. I have for the last 6 years been designing and cutting Vinyl sign graphics via an Illustrator plug-in called Cutting Master 2 1.82 within Adobe Illustrator CS4 for my Graphtec plotter. I obviously need to access the archive files I have created and stored over this timescale and amend/re-cut these files for existing customers, can anyone confirm or advise best way to accomplish this?
