This is the Question:

I want to log into some Adobe products with a Personal Adobe account (example, login via personal account to Photoshop)

AND

login to some different Adobe products with a Business Adobe account (example, login via business account to Acrobat)

WITHOUT

logging out and logging back in every time I want to use one app or another.  I want to permanently associate a given application to a given ID, but for some apps (ie: Photoshop) to be associated with a personal ID and some apps (ie: Acrobat) to be associated to a business ID.

Basically my company pays for some of my software and I pay for some.

Current solution:

Don’t use the Adobe business apps whenever possible.   Constantly logging out and in when switching apps is a dysfunctional design point.  ”One ID to rule them all” is a terrible idea.  Adobe, fix your support of different ID’s / different licenses for different apps.

Is there a better way?

Well, I think their concept is that it's one computer, so one log-in. Maybe just ask your company to reimburse you for the software that you are using at home and then you just have one log in that you are paying for, and getting some of the money back for it. And really, if you are only paying for some of the software and they are paying for some, it ends up being less expensive to just get the full package and having everything under one user log in anyway. You just might come out ahead in the end.

Sorry about that, but there is no solution to your problem except using 2 different computers.

I'm in the same boat as you, only my issue is with Photoshop and LIghtroom. My work-around is to stay signed-in to my corporate account on my iMac, but sign-in to my personal Photoshop and Lightroom account on my iPad Pro and via a web browser It's clunky, but it cuts down on the account switching.

I have exactly the same issue.  I bring my personal laptop to work because sometimes I need to take my work home.  Even though I use different windows users for personal appications (ie Photoshop and Lightroom) and company apps (Acrobat), I still have the log-out/log-in issue.  The suggestion to incorporate all and request reimbursement is neither feasible, nor desirable. The "overall savings" doesn't matter.  Did it not occur to Adobe that many, many people might need separate accounts for different situations?  Yes, this is a horrible design flaw.  I hope you fix it.  I see the OP was a year and 8 months ago... unless I'm missing the solution.  Looking for a solution is what landed me here.
