So I bought InDesign and simply can't install it. As in, it doesn't seem to exist. I downloaded the installer, which installed Creative Cloud (ugh), and in CC, there simply is no software called InDesign. Not in "All Apps", not in "Graphic Design" not anywhere. How am I supposed to install this thing?
