How is it 2021 and we STILL can't download more than one file at a time from our Cloud Libraries? I got really excited at the idea of grabbing assets and dragging them right in to whatever app I'm working in. What a handy idea I thought. So I spent a good part of a day downloading over 200 shutterstock files (we have a monthly download subscription) and then reuploading them to my Creative Cloud Library. Great! Except that the library windows are so small in the apps that you can't make out any detail so I realized this may be better as a backup and prodeeded to start downloading the files to a local folder (I had to delete all the local files I had initially downloaded from Shutterstock...long story) only to find out I could STILL only download one asset at a time. Seriously, Adobe has been aware of this issue/failure/request for almost 10 years and has done NOTHING about it. It's almost as though they want to make it as painful as possible to download all your assets so that you'll continue to use the cloud storage. I even tried synching to my Desktop but I can't seem to find any way to do that with Libraries so again, screwed. Adobe is capable of so much inovation when it comes to software development and yet fails so miserably with something that seems so simple. I even tried exporting the library from Bridge and then changing the file extention to .zip and while that kind of works in theory, it give you a folder for every single item so that's not an option either. 

It's unbelievable to me that Adobe has refused to do anything about this for so long.

I am having the same issue. I can't believe they still don't let you download multiple files at once.  Come on Adobe.

Honestly it's garbage. This completely turned me off of ever using the Cloud for anything.

Agreed, this is straight up stupidity. I don't know why anyone bothers paying the ridiculous price when we can't do something as simple as download more than one file.
