I would like to be able to work offline - when I am connected to the web my computer is so slow. So how do I do this? i pay a subscription - but Adobe CC keeps making me sign in to be able to use the latest version of Camera raw. It is driving me mad. have i missed something? Thanks for your help on this.

It's making you sign in to Camera Raw? Do you mean Photoshop? Camera Raw is INSIDE of Photoshop.

 

I don't think being connected to WIFI would slow down your computer.... but to work offline.... you simply Turn off WIFI and work. My apps open just fine whether on a plane or in a coffee shop.  If you are having issues perhaps contact Adobe Support. As long as you sign in like every month or so it should be working fine (it might even be 90 days) so if its a problem, its not really the internet, Support could perhaps help out or maybe you have to upgrade? 

 

Hope that helps.

cheers,

Mark,

I know this has been a few months, but have you tried opening the programs without being connected to wifi? Yes, it says we have a 30 day offline grace period, but in my experience, that's a load of garbage. If you are starting the programs, they have to connect, or they won't start. If you have them open and lose wifi most of them will not crash on you...except Acrobat and it kicks me out almost every time. I called customer support because I was unable to connect to the programs without wifi, a hurricane knocked out our internet for almost a week, and after waiting for a supervisor to call me back I was told sorry, if it wants to connect (and it will every day, maybe multiple times a day, the rep shared) it has to connect. There is no way around it. There used to be a snooze type option, or at least a work around that allowed you to keep getting things done. But now, if the wifi is out you're packing up and heading to a coffee shop or library...wait those aren't allowing people to sit inside during COVID...so you just have to tell your client oops, get to you when I can, things aren't working today. 

If you've found a way around this please share. At present, if I didn't have accounts with files created in Adobe software I'd cancel in a heartbeat because this is utterly ridiculous.

hello Jessica,

 

YES... my applications work just fine without internet all the time.

I just flew to NY and worked the entire way (5 hour flight from LA)

 

And I have done the same with numerous applications. Of course they check since Adobe is a business and don't want people pirating their software. And it also tries to connect since Adobe allows you to save projects to the cloud, and they link to tutorials, and they link to connect your libraries. 

 

I just recorded my screen and turned off WIFI and then opened up Photoshop... and it worked without any problem!
i was hoping to share it.... but I am only able to load a link.

 

but here is a screen shot from the video... you can see Photoshop is open.... and WIFI is NOT connected.

And how can you create all this cool stuff without Adobe??? They have amazing applications that work together and sync to the cloud! I love it!Screen Shot 2020-09-30 at 12.40.22 PM.png

 

Hope that helps.

good luck,

mark
