At the moment I do have 1 license for Indesign. I prefer to have two, becasue 2 users is not enough for our company. We want to work with these 2 licences in creative cloud. Is that possible. And how can I fix this?

 

Thanks for help!

Hi @defaultbzma3z0vv34k: So one user can have 2 licences for maybe a 3th laptop or desktop in the same cloud? One license is assigned to a single user. If you have two people who want to use InDesign, you will need to purchase two licenses—one for each person. Each of those people can then install the software on up to (and no more than) two computers, perhaps a work desktop and a personal laptop. When we purchase a subscription from Adobe, we agree to the following Terms of Use: https://www.adobe.com/legal/terms.html...

It is only one license / subscription that can be activated on more than one computer (typically up to two) and used by only one user. Each user must have their own license / subscription.

Are you sharing licenses? You must not. Each license is for only one person. If 6 people in the company use Indesign you must get 6 licenses. Team licenses are recommended.

To clarify, you are allowed two installations for the same user with one license. For example, one user can legally install InDesign on their desktop and their laptop. You are required to have a license for every single user. Two users are not allowed to share a single license.

 

You can purchase InDesign here: https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html?filter=design&plan=individual.

Thanks a lot. It really helps me!

The second user is just for a backup. 

And even the second licence is just for backup. Its not really ment for a second user.

 

So one user can have 2 licences for maybe a 3th laptop or desktop in the same cloud?

In terms of "in the same cloud"—the software is installed directly on the user's computer. If the user would like to share files or assets with colleagues—not the software—they can take advantage of shared network drives in the office, as well as cloud storage and CC Libraries, which can be accessed by multiple people..

You do get two licenses from one subscription, per say. You can install indesign in two different computers and have both share the same log in.

Both computers, but the same user, not both users.
