I need to download the inDesign CC 2014 because customer needs it on that version. Contacted Adobe support and they told me the don't have it (...doubt it...)...

 

In this times of COVID, where in some places remote work is the only thing possible, how can Adobe be so unsopportive... even if I am a paying subscriber...

Hi KRB,

in case you missed my answer in this other thread you asked:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/re-indesign-cc-2014-still-possible-to-download/m-p/11103158#M184898

 

Try this link below, read that very carefully and follow all download instructions to the dot:

https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2014-direct-download-links.html

 

For Updates with CC 2014 try the links below:

 

Windows:

https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2014-updates-links-windows.html

 

Mac OS X:

https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2014-updates-links-mac.html

 

FWIW: I cannot tell if all the download links will work.

And I cannot tell how long they will work and how long they are available.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

When you are a CC subscriber you can download all versions from CS6 upwards to the current versions. You need to have a computer which is compatible.

My question is, anyone who is entitled to use CC 2014 is also entitled to to use CC 2020, only some dependencies, like old computer or important plugins might force someone to use an older version. Maybei the customer is not aware.

  1. Hi! Thanks for answering.. however, the creative cloud has older versions going back only until 2019. For whatever reason they customer uses 2014 version and they have other external designer that use 2019 and then they cannot continue to work. It is a big customer and I don't understand why for paying customers adobe cannot send a link to a paying customer who request it....

There's no need to panic!

Create the Indy layout in whatever version you have, and save it as an IDML which is a backwards-compatible InDesign exchange format. Your customer will be able to open it in their CC2014.

 

The only thing to note is that if you use any of the new features in CC2020/2019, such as background shading, borders, column rules, etc., they won't carry through to CC2014. But the layout remains in tact.

 

On the other point, I think your client doesn't understand how subscription software works. They're paying a few hundred dollars a year to use an outdated version (CC2014), yet they're paying for  CC 2020 and not using it. Doesn't make much sense ... or cents!    Learn about installing other versions at https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/using/install-previous-version.html

 

This isn't anything new to the software industry: Microsoft has a similar subscription for their Office 365.

A CC subscription entitles you to the current version and the one earlier. That's it.

While you can follow Bevi's advice and save as IDML, it is important to note that with a longer document it is entirely possible that the text will reflow.

Try if the links on the following webpage still work

https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2014-direct-download-links.html

 

P.S. :- This will give you just the major version i.e. CC2014, you won't be able to get any updates of CC 2014, so you lose out on those bug fixes

Hi Willi,

that's not true anymore. Only the last two versions of CC are availbale through the CC Desktop App.

Currently CC 2019 and 2020. But you could download earlier versions that are still "authorised" through the ProDesign Tools website. That are installers for the "base" versions that are available. No downloads for bug fix versions available.

 

More details:

https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-limits-software-downloads.html

 

Let's see if there are some installers for the still "authorized" version of InDesign CC 2014:
