I downloaded the 2021 version of ID this morning because one of my clients upgraded its system. To my surprise Adobe decided to delete ID 2019, which I still use for another big client.
I wanted to install ID 2019 again, but to my even bigger surprise it is not available under ‘Older versions’ (screenshot). I clicked the link underneath for ‘even older versions’: all kinds op apps, but no InDesign.
My client uses a Woodwing Assets-system that only works with ID2019, and I cannot use idml files, so I desperately need ID 2019 again. Anybody knows a quick solution? Please say you do?
Thank you so much in advance.
First, check your Creative Cloud preferences. Old versions are only uninstalled if a user gives approval early on. You can change your preferences to not remove the old versions.
Adobe only allows one version back with the Creative Cloud application.
Try this site for downloading older versions:
I will never forget that first tip. Ever. 😉
The link links to the app with only the new versions available.
But thank you so much for your help.
The link I provided has links to the 2019 versions of the software near the bottom of the web page. Are you saying the links didn't work? I just tested it and they worked fine.
Do you know if the ProDesign links are to updated versions or the initial releases?

Do you have a backup image of your system? That may well be your only hope of getting version 15 back.
You sir, are a life safer. It worked, thank you so much for your help.
