I have Adobe CS6 (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign) installed and working on my Macbook Pro running macOS Yosemite. I would like to upgrade to macOS High Sierra but am afraid that my Adobe CS6 applications won't work after the update. Can someone confirm for me that they will work properly if I upgrade to High Sierra?
I know that there are discussions on this forum about new installations of CS6 on computers running High Sierra, and references to this link: Installing Creative Suite on macOS 10.12 (Sierra). But I currently have CS6 installed on my computer and want to update my software, which may be a different situation.
Can an Adobe staff member help confirm for me whether my currently installed CS6 Suite will work if I do a software update to High Sierra from Yosemite?

CS6 and earlier programs have not been tested and will not be updated for Mac El Capitan or later operating systems
-which means that you try to use CS6 and earlier at YOUR risk of having problems due to Apple updates
-Apple did not maintain backward compatibility with old programs in El Capitan or Sierra
No Adobe staff member will be able to answer your question, because Adobe no longer supports CS6 and as I said above, CS6 has not been tested by Adobe with new Mac or Windows operating systems
Proceed at your own risk of problems
Thanks for your help John.
Maybe a question that does have an answer is if anyone on these forums had Adobe CS6 installed on their machine and then upgraded to macOS High Sierra, and what happened?
Thanks for your help.
I have CS6 on Sierra. I upgraded to Mojave and realized it didn't work, so I'm just finishing up reinstalling Sierra. I would like to know as well if it works with High Sierra at least. My system is a bit of a mess after this 'downgrading'.
I installed CS6 with Sierra and then upgraded to High Sierra and it's working fine.
If an existing install is made unusable by a Mac operating system upgrade work through the below steps
