For a list of the latest system requirements for other Creative Cloud products, see http://www.adobe.com/products/creativecloud/tech-specs.html#requirements.

Trial software

Creative Cloud trials are "try and buy", allowing you to evaluate individual products or editions and then convert the installed trial to a full version. You can convert from a trial to a full version at any time by signing up for a subscription. If you purchase a subscription, you are required to be online and to log in with an Adobe ID to start using your full version.

License agreement

Internet connection, Adobe ID and acceptance of license agreement required to activate and use this product. This product may integrate with or allow access to certain Adobe or third-party hosted online services. Adobe services are available only to users 13 and older and require agreement to additional terms of use and Adobe’s online privacy policy (http://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/legal.html). Applications and Services may not be available in all countries or languages and may be subject to change or discontinuation without notice. Additional fees or membership charges may apply.

Font installation

Some Adobe Product installers install fonts into a default system font directory. If the installer finds older versions of these fonts in the default system font directory, it will uninstall the older versions, and save them to a new directory. Learn more at http://www.adobe.com/products/type/creative-cloud-fonts.html.

To find out how to install additional fonts, visit the installation page http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_fontinstall_en.

Known issues

Please refer to Adobe Support http://www.adobe.com/go/customer_support for late-breaking information and known issues for all Creative Cloud applications.

  • The ‘Place in InDesign’ feature of Bridge CC does not work when both InDesign CS6 and InDesign CC are open. [#3540938]
  • (Mac) If you try to open a file using drag-and-drop in InDesign, the application remains grayed out until you click somewhere within the application. [#3539304]
  • If you open a document with document fonts and select the ‘Show favorites only’ check box in the font menu, InDesign crashes on closing the document. This happens especially when the document has some missing fonts. [#3544918]
  • A document created using the default preset somehow imports the number of columns from a previously made preset. The previously made preset had Digital publishing as intent and a custom number of columns. [#3545176]
  • The Color Theme drop-down does not work sometimes after working with DPS panel. [#3384945]
  • InDesign crashes on changing intent and clicking OK, especially when the preview option is not selected. [#3546306]
  • After creating a document preset, if you cancel the New Document dialog box, the preset gets deleted. [#3493554, #3541235]
  • In the Find/Change dialog box, if you make any changes in the Change to combo box and click in the document, the value in the combo box reverts to the last value in the list. [#3546189]
  • The selected tool icon does not switch to the Grabby Hand immediately after pressing the spacebar. The icon changes to grabby hand only when you move your mouse. [#3546145]
  • Mouse shortcuts for text selection do not work in Story Editor. [#3546051]
  • (Mac) After installing both InDesign CS6 and InDesign CC, only the ‘Adobe InDesign CC’ launch icon is displayed in the Launchpad list. [#3546744]
  • Japanese only:
    • If you create more than four custom sets for a composite font, the value of the fourth custom set becomes un-editable, especially after using the scroll bar. [#3540930]
    • IVS characters entered in the composite font name field are displayed incorrectly. [#3378225]
    • The layout grid in the exported IDML appears different as compared to how it looks in the InDesign source file. [#3542604]
