Hi Elisabeth, the only chance to install CC 2019 is downlaoding the installer from the ProDesign Tools website: https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2019-direct-download-links.html     But I cannot tell if the installers still work and if installed, that InDesign CC 2019 is recognized by the current Creative Cloud Desktop App to offer bug fix updates.   Regards,Uwe Laubender ( ACP )

Sadly you can only install the current and previous versions of InDesign.

Curious that your school should specify such a high end, professional application.

Hi Elisabeth,

what older version of InDesign do you like to install?
What's the operating system version you currently have installed?

 

If your school requires you to use a specific InDesign version, what is that version?

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

You should be able to install the previous version by clicking the more button in your Cloud app:

Already done that. It is only written "see more" about what indesign is, that's it.

If 2019 isn't available in the CC desktop app, then compare your system specs to the system requirements for CC 2019. See https://helpx.adobe.com/in/indesign/system-requirements/2019.html.

 

Note the footnote: 

* Not supported on Windows 10 versions 1507, 1511, and 1607, so double check your OS.

You are right, of course. Bob. FrameMaker is at 2020 and 2019, InDesign is at 2021 and 20202120 and I mixed them up. Version naming consistency would be helpful as I hop back and forth between the two forums. So would a bit more coffee.
