Hello, 

I've recently updated my indesign to the new Indesign 2021 but I need my old Indesign 2018 for all my plug ins to work. 

I've been to https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/using/install-previous-version.html and it doesn't has it. The creative cloud app also doesn't have.

Where can I find it?

Try the www.prodesigntools.com website. The links posted on this site download from Adobe servers. If they don't work, then it means that Adobe has stopped providing the download. Anyone contacting you claiming to provide an installer would most certainly be a spammer so avoid them. -Manan

Hi slycatch7,

what's the exact version number of your now installed InDesign CC 2018?

To check that hold the Ctrl key and go to About InDesign ( or the Cmd key when on Mac OS X ).

 

If you are lucky you installed the latest updated and bug fixed version of InDesign CC 2018 with version number 13.1.1.110 like I am showing this from my German InDesign on Windows 10:

Adobe supports only the last two versions of the software officially and those versions are available via the Creative Cloud Desktop app. The other versions though available from Adobe servers are not something that they actually want us to use nor do they provide us with any support for these versions.

AFAIK, what you see there is what you get. It's not supported and I don't know if you'll get any updates through Creative Cloud. In short, you're on your own here.

 

Perhaps if you tell us why it's so important to use a four year old version of InDesign we might be able to offer some ideas.

You need to have a conversation with the client about this. Find out what's holding them back and see what can be done about it.

This doesn't make sense. You said you downloaded the installer. I presume you installed it since you said it needed updating. Then you said you were at a lost as to how to download it.

Please explain.

That sounds like an issue with your OS, not InDesign.

Appart from if it is actually possible to run CC 2018 on Big Sur (don't know, system requirements don't necessarily mean it can't run) – that's maybe because of the "phoneing-home" that the Installer is obviously doing.
I ran into the exact same problem the other day on a Windows maschine, blocked internet access for the install and voila, no problems... afterwards you can/need to connect it again for validating licensing.

Well. You are on Big Sur 11.2.1. That means that you cannot run InDesign CC 2018 on that system. See:

https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/macos-big-sur-compatibility.html

 

To run InDesign CC 2018 you either need a machine with a lower version of Mac OS or a Windows PC.
