Hi there, I just got a new MacBook Air and searching my CC for versions of InDesign 2020. I need it to work together with the publisher app «Wood Wing Studio» which doesn't work on InDesign 2021. But my Creative Cloud only show's me versions to intall from InDesign 16.0 upwards. I also had InDesign 2020 installed on my old MacBook Pro running on Big Sur and had no problems with it. Is there any solution for this? Thanks!

Do you have your CC Desktop app updated? If not, try updating it and then try. I can see version 15 available for me. See the screenshot
Do you happen to have the debug version of InDesign installed? If so, make sure you check the versions of the release version as I noticed that the debug version is giving options only from 16 and later.
Thank you for your reply. Yes, i have the latest CC desktop app. What exactly is the debug version of InDesign? I just installed the latest version of InDesign. It informed me that I install the intel based version. But 15. versions of InDesign also weren't listed before I installed any version of InDesign. I had another idea, but not sure, if that works: I still have InDesign 2020 installed on an older MacBook. Is there any possibility to copy it to my new computer? Thank you! Ursina
Debug version is a version used by developers. If you don't know about it, then surely you might not be using it. Regarding your query about copying the installed application from another MAC, no it won't work as the files are written at many locations, not just the Applications folder. I would suggest the following now
Okay, thank you. I will try that.
Is this an M1 machine? Lots of compatibility issues there.
Yes, it is.
There is an M1 native version in the works and a beta is already available. You'll find it in the beta section of the CC Desktop app. There is no way that 2020 will be an M1 native application and I also wouldn't count on any of those plugins working on it, either.
