Using the newest version of Illustrator won't let me use new files for older illustrator versions (ex: illustrator at school)
Opening Illustrator files created last night on the newer version on my home computer won't load at school on an older version of Illustrator. The files are completely missing artwork. You can see all the components on the recently opened page, but when you open the file. The artwork doesn't load.

We have bumped up the file format in AI 2020 so any file created in AI 2020 is not compatible in older versions. Please do a save as Illustrator CC version before sharing the file.
The older release should also be warning users that the file was created in a new version and will have some data loss.
