I'm very annoyed that this hasn't been addressed anywhere! In fact, this is the only thread I found, and there are no real solutions. I work with clients/printers that don't use CC, so I need to prepare the data for older versions of illustrator. I need to double-check the version before sending, and now there is no way to do it!
