Hold off on updating to CC 2015 until you read this!
As of the end of today, June 23, we’ll have released new versions of all our plug-ins for CC 2015 and earlier (still going all the way back to CS5).
(InCatalog coming later today.)
Adobe released InDesign CC 2015 today. We knew the upgrade was coming, but Adobe kept everyone guessing about the exact timing, and they took us a bit by surprise.
While it’s tempting to upgrade immediately if you’re on Creative Cloud, you absolutely need to read this post first, from Steve Werner at InDesign Secrets:
By default, all your previous versions of InDesign will be removed, and our plug-ins with them, so you’ll be out of business.
If you haven’t already upgraded, but would like to, see the Adobe Creative Cloud blog article
which details how to install CC 2015 without removing the previous versions, and our plug-ins along with them.
Luckily, the InDesign Secrets article above describes a way to get back the previous versions. So if you’ve upgraded to CC 2015 using the defaults, you can re-install the previous CC version you were using, and re-download our plug-ins to get back to work. (Be sure to target the appropriate previous version in the Extension Manager when installing the downloaded plug-in .zxp files.)
Meanwhile, we’ve been working on getting our plug-ins ported to CC 2015, and making good progress. It’s going to take us several days to get them all going and released, so we beg your patience.
The CC 2015 upgrades will be paid (unlike CC 2014, where we gave everyone an extra year of free upgrades), though of course our usual 9-month upgrade protection period applies. So if you’ve bought or upgraded your plug-in in the past 9 months, you’ll receive an upgraded CC 2015 license at no cost.
