How can I down-save a CS5 Illustrator file to CS4 Illustrator file?

asked Aug 25, 2013 in Graphic Design by Jake (580 points)
I recently got CS5 for my home desktop, and I am using CS4 in my school. I am looking for a way to be able to use the same file in both versions. Is it possible to save or export my files as a different extension so that I can use these files I create at  home using my CS5 Illustrator in the CS4 version I am using at school?
Can anyone please help?
Many thanks in advanced

There is an Option available in your Illustrator options panel that enables you to choose the version you want to save as. This option displays after you select the location of the file you want to save. when you click at the bottom right Save button and after selecting  .ai as your  file type in the drop down menu.
