Adobe’s practice of renaming apps results in empty icons in task bar (Win) and dock (Mac).

This happens just often enough to be slightly annoying. When Adobe renames apps (adding the current/next year to the app name) it results in broken links in the task bar (Win) and dock (Mac, not shown). Please consider naming apps with a single, canonical name, and let users visit the app's "about" menu to determine what version they are on. "Adobe InDesign" would be an excellent name for the app, no matter what year I am using it in. Thanks for considering!

In my initial report, I forgot to include one additional side-effect of the renaming of apps (and breaking their task bar/dock links... it also removes one's carefully-curated collection of "pinned" documents, which are accessible by right-clicking over the icon in the task bar, and choosing the relevant pinned document. These are all gone, after upgrading.

Hi @tracemeek , thanks for your post. I've added this request to the backlog. Unfortunately, we can't have a single name since some members keep multiple versions installed on their machines and each major version is independent of the other. We'll investigate how to accomplish this.

This idea would not work for me at all, as I need to keep multiple versions of Adobe apps.
