InDesign 2020 which is no longer available for download. Time for a new machine if you can't upgrade your operating system past that.

Yeah pay 700 Euro a year for software and if you want a older version, no plese pay again 3000 Euro to another company.
Thats how economy works.

Serious a company like Adobe is not capable to serve older versions?

You want them to support 10-15 year old hardware and operating systems?

 

There's plenty of reasons to criticize Adobe for but this, IMO, is not among them. Computers don't last forever.

I don't have said they should support them with new software, but the old ones to serve is also for smaller companies no problem.
And yes Macintosh have a high lifetime instead of pcs. Welcome in the world of the throwaway society.
I wait until cars will also crap not because they don't drive but the software is too old.
Think about it!

I don't have to. My car is a 21 years old.

 

My computer is two years old and I built it myself.

Macs don't have a high lifetime - I replace mine every 6-7 years.

I have a Windows 10 PC built in 2016 - runs InDesign 2024 no problems. 

 

The only time I have a problem with a computer is on the Mac. Never have issues on the PC laptop.

I've been using both for over 25 years for production work. 

 

Sorry to say - Apple, Macs etc. are not all they're cracked up to be.

Anyway - doesn't solve your issue - the issue is the lack of support for older software on Creative Cloud.

They stopped supporting older versions a while ago - you can only download the latest version and the previous version.

This helps them streamline and not have users on different versions, on different systems, with lots of different issues.

 

I agree, it's not ideal. At all. 

But this is their decision.

 

If your computer doesn't support the software that you bought, then you need to buy a new computer that does support it.

 

For the record, I think you could buy a PC laptop for a 1/3 the price of a Mac that would work just as well.

The software is the exact same cross-platform.

 

Unless you have specific software requirements that are Apple dependent - I see relatively low reasons for spending high values towards a computer. 

 

Macs are expensive, and for the life of me I can't figure out why.

I just got the M3 32gb - and it performs as well as my 2016 PC Laptop.

 

As I say - 25 years of production work on both - very little difference in how the software works.

 

Sorry if it's not the answer you're looking for. 

But it's the way it is.

In addition to all other advices you receive:

 

I know that many users successfully install newer systems on unsupported Macs by using OpenCore Legacy Patcher:

https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Legacy-Patcher/

 

In which case you should be able to use the latest InDesign versions.

 

I personally don't have any experience with this, am not associated with this product, and only post it as a general info which you may or may not find useful. If you want to know more I recommend to check forums on MacRumors.com - there are many active discussions on OCLP there.
