Stop CC sync?

Hi all.

I have never used the file sync feature in CC and I never will. When the CC app was new, I apparently managed to find a way to turn the feature off, so it has never bugged me.

But today I found out that my CC menu item has become equipped with a small "pause" symbol:

When I open the CC app, it says that syncing is paused. Not turned off, but paused. And in the settings panel, there is no no-sync option, just an option to de-pause syncing.

Does anybody know if  I have to live with this little pause symbol from now on, reminding me that I'm obviously not using CC the way I should? A bit annoying, to say the least.

Or is there any way to re-disable syncing so that CC goes back to its former behaviour, not implicitly suggesting that I really really should be using the sync feature?

Any help appreciated.

 

Edit: MacBook Pro, MacOS 10.14.5, CC 5.0.0.354

Hi

There's no way that I know of, I don't use the sync function either and have it set to pause, can't say that the pause symbol on the icon has ever bothered me, infact I only noticed it since you mentioned it and it still doesn't bother me 😉

The pause addition to the menu icon must be fairly new, I haven't seen it before.

I think it's been like that since the last update to the Creative Cloud app, in the old app as far as I remember you could actually disable the sync, why they decided to change it is beyond me, you can post a feature request on the Adobe Feedback Forum

I have now found out the reason for the pause symbol.

After booting the computer, there is no pause symbol attached to the CC menu item. But once I open CC (with file syncing "paused", meaning off), the pause symbol pops up, and will stay on top of the CC menu item until next reboot. Extremely silly behaviour.
