Hello,

We are having a extension which is working fine in InDesign CC 2017, now we are trying to use the same with InDesing CC 2018 with supported CEP version 8.0. For that we have updated our manifest file entry as:

<ExecutionEnvironment>

        <HostList>

            <Host Name="IDSN" Version=["13.1", "13.9"]/>

        </HostList>

        <LocaleList>

            <Locale Code="All"/>

        </LocaleList>

        <RequiredRuntimeList>

            <RequiredRuntime Name="CSXS" Version="8.0"/>

        </RequiredRuntimeList>

    </ExecutionEnvironment>

But we are unable to see the extension in InDesign's option "Window > Extensions menu".

Also, If we will keep the CEP version to 7.0 then it seems to work.

Can you post your whole manifest file? There is another ExtensionManifest@Version attribute that needs to match the RequiredRuntime version.

See this example:

As i mentioned in the previous ticket this is know bug, see the link i mentioned previously as well

https://www.davidebarranca.com/2017/10/html-panel-tips-25-cc-2018-survival-guide/

Look at the Bugs section, quoting the text relevant to your issue

  • Version="8.0" in the <ExtensionManifest> and <RequiredRuntime> tags in manifest.xml (to match CEP version) makes the Panel disappear from the Extensions list.
