For a list of the latest system requirements for other Creative Cloud products, see

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

You must accept the license agreement and warranty terms to use this product. Visit for details. This product will not function without mandatory activation and registration via the Internet. Phone activation is not available. See for details.

Adobe's single user license allows installation of a single product license on two machines (such as one work machine and one home machine) provided the software is used by the same individual and not concurrently on both machines.


If you want to install the product on a third computer, you must first deactivate the software on one computer. To deactivate, choose Help > Deactivate.

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

To find out how to install additional fonts, visit the installation page

Known issues

Please refer to Adobe Support for late-breaking information and known issues for all Creative Cloud applications.

Images in Brushes

When you scale brushes using the Brush Options dialog, some visual artifacts may appear on screen. Zoom in/out to restore the appearance of the brush.   

Touch Type Tool

When you use the Touch Type Tool on ligatures, transformations work only on the first glyph, instead of the whole ligature.


A transparent, mixed-ink image may show minor differences in appearance upon unembedding. This is due to white-matting applied in the Process Color regions of the image.

DXF / DWG Import

When you import complex and heavy DXF or DWG files, the progress bar may not be displayed at times. Wait for the document to refresh to see imported content.
