Hello. We use various versions of principle software AutoCad across our computers. We have been moving from stand-alone versions to subscription based, but have a computer with an early standalone of AutoCad LT 2014. Because this is not compatible with anything newer versions of Mac OS than El Cap, we haven't upgraded.

 

InDesign though isn't compatible with the early operating systems. Could we get a download link for a version of InDesign compatible with OS X El Capitan 10.11.6?

 

Thanks!

CreativeCloud-OtherVersions.pngTry this:

From the Creative Cloud App, open the elipses (the three little dots ... ) in the InDesign panel.

From there you can access 'other versions'

Let us know if that solves your issue.

Thanks Eric, but no - that doesn't lead to any other versions of InDesign to be downloaded....

Hi,

Can you include a screenshot of the window that appears when you click on 'Other Versions'. As you can see from the image below, I can access version 14 which should be compatible with your OS and even older ones using the 'View More' at the bottom of the window.

I note the creative cloud app says it only has updates for OS later than 10.12...

 

Thanks again

Adobe now limits the available downloads to the two most recent versions, so CC2019 and CC2020 are your only options.

Thanks for clarifying though.

If you have older versions installed they will show in the previous versions list.

Actually, what Eric's screenshot actually shows is really just two versions of InDesign (CC 2020—Version 15 and CC 2019—Version 14). Incremal updates for the latest version (15) are showing in the list which makes it appear that there are more than two versions available.

Thanks Rob and Bill

So really, there is no version available that is compatible with the operating system we are running?

I would avoid non-adobe download sites for creative cloud apps. There is no assurance of getting a legitimate version of the program. Also, the link that is here posted is three years old.

Hi Bill,

I can asure you that, if the links are still working on prodesigntools, the installer files you will download are on an Adobe server. However, there is another problem: The installers you can download from there are only "base" versions. Means with the example of InDesign CC 2017: Only version 12.0.0.0 is available. And not the last bug fix update version 12.1.0.56. Adobe removed all the bug fix versions and you cannot get them from customer care or other Adobe sources.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
