Hi Shild,

what kind of file? What kind of cloud?

What's your version of InDesign and operating system?

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

Hi Shild,

can you exactly tell what you did? Screenshots would help…

Did you save an artwork from Adobe Illustrator as asset to CC Libraries perhaps?

If so, this artwork should be available in CC Libraries with InDesign. And therefore also placeable.

Perhaps as SVG graphic…

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

I have the same problem.  I create a photoshop graphic on my ipad and want to get it to layout page in InDesign.  This does not seem to work.  No option in "place" to make that happen.  Yes we have access to assets, but not the actual graphics.  So I need to download the file to a disk.  Seems like a flaw in the Document Cloud ecosystem.  The think is, Artwork is NOT available in CC Libraries, just patterns, colors etc.

InDesign cannot place Illustrator Cloud documents or Photoshop Cloud documents directly. That is not the purpose of those formats. It is to be able to efficiently move files between desktop and mobile devices, as well as to track versions. Those formats are not supported for importing or placing by other applications, including InDesign,

 

You must do a Save As and save as a document which resides on your desktop computer, on a server, then File > Place into InDesign. Alternately, you can add the files as a graphic asset to a Creative Cloud library. You can then drag the asset into InDesign.

For now, the benefit of Cloud Documents is exchanging whole documents in a network-efficient way between Mac/Windows and mobile versions of the same app (Illustrator, Photoshop, XD…). Also, Adobe gives Cloud Documents abilities it doesn’t provide to conventional local documents, such as version history and Invite to Edit collaboration.

 

I say “for now” because it might change in the future. InDesign was updated to place from Creative Cloud Libraries, but that has not (yet) happened for Cloud Documents. Hopefully placing Cloud Documents wll come in the future, but we don’t know when. For now we have to do the workaround of saving a copy of a Cloud Document to local storage and placing that in InDesign.
