I still have the same issues with Dimension as I had before the update.

First point:

Dimenision tells me I'm not connected to Creative Cloud.
Creative Cloud Desktop app tells me: everything is fine.

Second point:

Whatever object I drag in the work area is not visible. I can see the objects on the objects list, but that's it.

I have these issues for weeks, and I hoped the update brings a fix.

After signing out of the cc desktop app and signing again, I started Dimension and got an error message that I have to sign in with no further explanations. Then I started Illustrator, and there I saw the reason: There was still a connection  between the account and the old PC.

I was able to unsign from the old PC in that dialog box. 

Now I can start Dimensions without the cloud error message.

Nevertheless, when I create an object, the main problem remains that it is not visible in the work area.

You are right. On my private PC, Dimension is running without any issues, and there is no cloud symbol. I assume you can see that symbol only if Dimension thinks there is no cloud connection for whatever reason.

On my private PC, I've got a private account. This has nothing to do with my company account. On my company account, I sign in and out regularly.

  1. you only see that icon when there is an error
  2. Dimension can not see the creative cloud app on your system so shows the error icon... its an error at your end and will be notwork network related but we can't help without more details

 

  • what build of Dimension?
  • Apple Mac or Windows?
  • is this a personal, school or enterprise account?
  • Vpn, school proxy server... is Adobe creative cloud running in the background BEFORE starting Dimension?
  • actual system specs?

Dimension version: 3.4.1

Windows 10 Enterprise 20H2 Build 19042.804

Enterprise Account

Adobe Creative Cloud is running in the background, and it is connected. All other CC Applications (PS, Illustrator, InDesign, Animate, etc.) have no such issues.

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz

16.0 GB Ram

NVIDIA Quadro Pro P2200 driver version 461.40 (latest)

The whole system had a clean installation 2 months ago. Everything has worked fine without any issues except Dimension. I had the installation on an older PC last year, and Dimension worked as it should. Actually, I've got the new PC to have a bit more power for 3D applications. At least, Blender works 😉

nevertheless, it would be great to get this running.

the senario you describe has happened to me before... in my case (and I assume yours) Dimension is linked to the old computer and thinks you are trying to run your enterprise account on two machines

That sounds reasonable, but how come? The old PC is gone. I had a fresh installation on the new PC 2 or 3 months ago. There is no link between the old and the new PC. Therefore I assume that this information ("Dimension is linked to the old computer") comes from the Adobe cloud. The question is, how to get rid of it?

BTW: I tried to find the section where I could manage my devices with my online account. No way. I just couldn't find it. It must be a top-secret place. I've found these instructions from 2016: https://community.adobe.com/t5/digital-editions/manage-authorized-devices/m-p/3948262#M11277

But as it seems, Adobe moved this area to another place. Does anybody know how to find the "Activated devices" section on your Adobe account?

Ahhhh, thanks for that hint. I thought it's just confusion on Adobe's side. Good to know that this is the world-renowned "small bubbles" strategy 😂
