Adobe officially supports ony the latest two versions of the CC apps, so you can only download CC2020 and CC2019 version of InDesign. If you are stuck with using CC2018 then you can try downloading it from the following link, they may or may not work https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2018-direct-download-links.html Do note that even if you are able to get the download link working you won't be able to update, as there are not update links for the same. -Manan

Hi Manan, my assumption is that this is not working for all InDesign CC versions. Why? Because there are dot updates available on Prodesign Tools for CC 2013, CC 2014 and CC 2015. Not for CC 2017 and CC 2018. We can only hope that the CC Desktop app will fill that gap. Regards, Uwe Laubender ( ACP )

Hi Manan,

I did not test this and I will not test it:

After uninstalling InDesign CC 2018 13.1.1 and installing 13.0.0 by using the installer on the Prodesign Tools site it could be that the Creative Cloud Desktop app would recognize the fresh installation and offer an update to a dot version like 13.1.1.

 

Meriem could test this.

And can come back here to report if an update is offered.

Uwe Laubender

Hi Uwe, thanks for the tip. So do you think this will be the case for all CC versions or something after i suppose CC2015(not sure i vaguely remember reading something related somewhere)?

I know this is an old thread, but I do find it insane that Adobe will not allow updates to this app through Creative Cloud. I am also in a situation where I need access to ID 13, but am stuck on 13.0 with no ability to update it. CC shows the app as "updated" when obviously it is not. This is needless aggravation for users. While I understand that these are not typical use cases for most customers, I fail to see the harm in letting us have access to applications that we need when they're obviously still useful and being paid for.
