    The most significant difference between Adobe CC 2018 (and 2017) as compared to previous CC and CS versions is that Adobe shall no longer be offering direct downloads for each and every individual application within the CC ever-increasing array of products. Products such as InDesign, InCopy, Dreamweaver still haven’t been offered as a direct download for the CC 2017 versions, yet all the hot air emanating from Adobe suggesting it’s either work in progress or the links are due imminently. As such, this falsely gives Adobe’s subscribers hope when in reality, I am of the opinion after a two year long wait, that Adobe are gradually attempting to wean us all off direct downloads all together.

    Regardless of the noises that various Adobe representatives and managers have hinted at this year’s Adobe MAX conference concerning their commitment to releasing direct downloads for the CC 2018 suite of products, I very much doubt to see direct downloads for InDesign, InCopy, and Dreamweaver CC 2018.

    The continued increasing growth of CC subscribers is the prime reason for Adobe to be dragging their heels over the availability of direct downloads. If there were to be a sustained fall in subscribers, Adobe would soon rectify their falling revenue by once again offering direct downloads solely to appease their shareholders.

    I understand the mindset of Adobe, and the picture is not at all rosy for direct downloads, irrespective of the what has been said by the smooth-talking Adobe representatives.

  2. Hi, Thanks for these in-depth links to the new features! I have seen some videos, but they were not as precise as these links!

    Will there be any backwards compatibility issues between 2018 and 2017 InDesign? We had issues with our vendors with the last upgrade and are holding back until all parties are ready to upgrade together.

    Don’t want a repeat of saving the extra IDML files again.

    • Hi Eric, each major new release of InDesign has always made a new format that older releases cannot open. The document file format evolves and improves with each successive version – and so again there are changes in the format between InDesign CC 2017 and CC 2018.

      If you open a document saved from CC 2018 in the InDesign CC 2017 application, then you’ll receive a dialog box with this notice:

      InDesign could not open “filename.indd” because it has been created in a newer version – Adobe InDesign CC 13.0. Click “Convert” to convert and open this document.

      Content created using features specific to the later version of InDesign may be modified or omitted when you open the document in a previous version.

      <Convert> or <Cancel>

    I was involved in the beta-testing that created Syntrillium’s Cool Edit Pro. I specifically figured out how to remove the sounds of a washing machine in a drum track. My concern on Adobe CC is my rights, specifically copyrights of new music, and of theft via corporate espionage. I am unsure if Adobe can realistically promise creative privacy while relying on cloud-based architecture. Over-simplifying in this way, that means anyone inside Adobe or who can hack Adobe Audition servers can steal what I am creating. Would anyone have a workaround on this concern? Adobe complains about being paid via subscriptions to keep programmers employed. What about musicians too? It’s a fair question.

    Actually, I want to know that if i know all the features and functions of adobe premiere pro cc 2015, would it be difficult for me to learn adobe premiere pro cc 2017?
    Please reply.
