When you work on multiple computers, managing and syncing glyph sets, menu customizations, keyboard shortcuts, custom workspaces, and PDF presets among the computers could be a chore.
The new Sync Settings feature enables individual users to sync their settings using Creative Cloud. If you use two computers, for example, one at home and another at work, the Sync Settings feature makes it easy for you to keep those settings synchronized on these two computers. Also, if you have replaced your old computer with a new one and have reinstalled InDesign, you can get the application set up quickly with all your settings in place by just pressing a button.
Note: At any given time, you can activate InDesign on two computers only.
The syncing happens via your Adobe Creative Cloud account. All the settings are uploaded to Creative Cloud and then are downloaded and applied on the other computer.
All sync operations are initiated by users. They cannot be scheduled or performed automatically (such as at launch or during shutdown).
Prerequisites for this feature to work:
- Computers should be connected to the Internet.
- You have signed into your Adobe Creative Cloud account on both computers.
