I am done paying for their monthly subscription and am trying to save all of my work from the Cloud so  I can hopefully open it in a legacy version. Do I have to save each file in my "Synced files" folder separately? I am looking to grab all of the documents  all at once but that doesn't seem to be possible. Thank you for any tips or advice you have.

I'm sure there is probably a script that can iterate through a folder and export .idml for any .indd files it finds (and hopefully someone will eiother provide that, or a link to it, here).

That said, you'll need to copy all of those files to a local storage location as you'll lose access to anything on the cloud when you stop paying, and unless you already have a perpetual license for a legacy version, along with installers and patches, you're going to have a pretty hard time installing a non-subscription version and it's bug patches.

Hi Peter,

yes, Peter Kahrel's great Batch Process is the one:
