For me the folder link now is working again but the download won't work. If you hit at Download and chose a format you will be redirected to that URL:
with nor result. White screen, no file.
@detlefk - Please share the folder link with me in a forum Private Message. We will investigate.
katelynl44825114 - The issue from August 2015 was different.
From looking at the public link you have added the items as library elements to a Library which does not allow Commenting or Download.
I just tried with a folder containing files and it is working correctly. Sample link http://adobe.ly/1NPRqun.
Thanks Ken. Your library works, but I just tried it with a different library of mine that contains .jpeg files, which should be downloadable, right? Here is a link:
Am I doing something incorrectly? On Adobe it says,
"When you share a link with someone, they can view a high fidelity preview of the assets directly in the web browser without having to install Creative Cloud apps or sign in to the website. In addition to viewing the assets, they can write comments or download a copy of the files (if you permit them to do so)."
Do I have some sort of permission or safety thing on? I cannot find anything that restricts the viewer from downloading copies. Can I not drag elements from Illustrator/InDesign/Photoshop into a library? How else would I add these things?
If you share the jpeg files from the Files section then they can be downloaded. With a Library the idea is to have them available from the Library panel inside such desktop applications as Photoshop and Illustrator. You then add library elements to a file. The Libraries help page is here .https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/how-to/creative-cloud-libraries.html.
Oh, ok. That works. Has this previously changed? I swear I thought I shared a library before and the download button was an option. Maybe I'm losing my mind.
Why then, when I am viewing a library in a web page, and go to Share -- Send Link, is there an option to "allow downloads" if that isn't actually an option? I have attached a screenshot of what I am referring to.
Essentially, what my company wants to do is this:
We are graphic designers working for engineers. We want to collaborate on libraries so we maintain a brand consistency and have the ability to grab elements of a graphic that is built and use it as a base point to build a new graphic for a different project without manipulating the original graphic. So assets in Libraries is perfect for this. But then sometimes an engineer wants to view samples of our recent work, and download a PDF to markup and add comments for changes to be made. Do you think it would be better to move these items out of Libraries and into Files?
Thanks for your help.
No need to apologize. We really do love getting feedback. The idea with Allow Downloads for a Library or Library Element is that you can then use the Save to Creative Cloud link on the top right of the public link page. That will create a new private copy for the person that does this. And then it will appear in their desktop application library panel where they can add it to a file as needed.
I will share the feedback that you would like to be able to Allow Comments on library elements.
For now if you want to be able to track comments from the CC Assets site you will need to use the Files section. But I do understand that you want to be able to do this from a Library.
