Import previous settings and preferences

While updating to new versions of Creative Cloud apps, by default, all previously installed versions of the apps are removed. Customized preferences and settings are migrated to the latest version of the app.

You can choose to retain previously installed versions of apps or not migrate settings. See Advanced update options.
