I have a work account for photoshop and lightroom and a personal account for premier. It is inexcusable that everytime I need to edit a video I must close everything I am working on to log out to log into another account, and hevan forbid I need to photoshop an asset to use in premier. How is sign-in not tied to the APP? I'm paying for Premier, my company is paying for Photoshop. Its seems like such a simple soultion, tie the log in to the APP you are paying for and not every adobe product on the computer.
Does anyone have a work around other than buying two computers?

good suggestion (though i bet, if implemented, lots of people will scream that adobe ruined their corporate workflow where different users utilize the same computer and must now sign out and then back in on every single app to get to their cc files). so, adobe would have to contend with that.
but make it here to be meaningful, https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html
I doubt corporate users are frequently using their personal accounts on work computers. I would say the market or people like me who work in the field or from home that have both apps provided by their employer and apps they have thier own personal subscription to is larger than exspected.
I wouldn't even care if I had to be running two copies of the creative cloud app if it would save me from having to save and close everything just to access another program to make a minor change. I can't honestly think of a good reason why this wouldn't be a feature. If I am paying for two diffrent subscriptions for two diffrent programs then I should be able to access both of those programs. Image if work payed for MS Word, but you paid for excel and you couldn't use one without closing the other one of them.
it really doesn't matter what you (or any of the rest of use posting here) think, and it doesn't matter what you (or any of the rest of us) post here. post where suggested, or feel free to vent.

A simpler solution would be to have one plan that contains all 3 apps. But since you don't, you must log-out of one to access the other account.
From the Adobe side (and I'm guessing as am not representing them), they may not see a high demand for this type of situation (as you acknowledged) or may not have considered it. As was mentioned before, you could request Adobe do this.
Something that is common in workplaces is that work computers are not to be used for personal projects, particularly if they are commercial. So in the case of people doing some commercial projects outside of their primary work role, they may have a separate computer with a personal licence with the necessary software. That removes any issues of conflicts of using a company's resources for outside work.
Creative Cloud is a user-based subscription, not an equipment-based subscription. Under the current model, what you ask is not feasible.

Thats about the most ridiculous corporate speake I've ever heard.
"Users" are subscring for the "equipment" and some "users" would like to be able to acess all the "equipment" they are paying for at the same time. The focus on the user and not the equipment is the problem. Its so easy to fix, Business accounts could have a feature added to assign the apps to another adobe account and rovoke at any time, or like I showed in the concept photo above, allow users to sign in to apps from the creative cloud app as another user.
I'll submit the sugestion, its just a bad implimentation and I don't understand why some people are defending it so much. I found countless post on here, reddit, and other forums of people who have work and personal accounts. I don't have this problem with any other software.
