Move Adobe folder from my 'Documents' folder on Mac

Anyone know if there is a solution to this yet? It's driving me insane. Not sure why Adobe thinks that the Documents folder is a good place for this. It's syncing to my iCloud account, so it ends up on my phone, ipad, etc and I can't find any way of moving it to another location.

Stay out of my Documents folder, Adobe! This has been a problem for years and I've had enough. I'm on the verge of just getting rid of Adobe altogether.

It's not the creative cloud files folder. It's a folder simply titled 'Adobe' and contains several subfolders for different applications - media encoder, Premier Pro, etc. The folders seem to contain mainly preference files and suchlike. I really don't want this in my Mac's Documents folder, and I certainly don't want it taking up my iCloud space. Moving the folder simply results in another one being created. Not good enough.
