Why Adobe is discontinuing MUSE? Are we, Muse users will still have the software available to us after 2020. I understand not having the support, but not having the software is going to be a big lost. Can someone please find out with me what is going on. Simplification not necessarily can be the solution for every Professional Designer! Adobe kept Dreamweaver, why not keeping Muse? Well, I respectfully can just speculate some answers, but I rather not. I Love Adobe Muse. I hope Adobe will keep it at lease for their users choice.
Based on Adobe's history with other EOL software like Fireworks, it's indeed possible that Muse will remain available for download in CC Desktop App (Show Older Apps) beyond 2020. However, I think you should start looking for alternative tools now. Unlike graphics which don't change much, the web is constantly changing. So the tools you use need to keep pace with newer web technologies. Muse is not keeping up with current web technologies much less newer ones. So you must decide which is better. Keeping your old software or moving to something that has a future.
Dreamweaver is one option. Pinegrow and Webflow are a couple of others.
Thank you for giving me something to research on Newer Web Technologies for the future and for me to keep up to date on this issues. Nevertheless, companies like www.muse-themes.com will think about possible ways to readjust their themes and widgets templates, because that is the lost I am presently referring to, but I am going to do what you just suggested due to the fact that futuristically is the smartest things for me to do that makes sense. Can you refer to me a tutorial or video explaining a lot more about Adobe XD, Spark and Portfolio's differences in regards to Muse? If is not to much to ask. Nancy thank you. I'm going to check those other options that you gave me. Shalom!
Being with muse-themes as weel, you may also have read this from a subpage, referring to Without Code and Muse in general:
Understandably, we receive notes almost daily asking why we continue to release new products for Adobe Muse even though Adobe is no longer developing new features. I wanted to shed some light on this, and clarify exactly why we’re still supporting MT:
You may have to go for some 7days testings (most of the apps like pinegrow, blocs for mac, … provide this).
Webflow even lets you be free forever for limited sites with limited pages.
It is very bad that they take out the muse, we trust and spend money to learn and now they leave us on the Street.
XD is a prototyping tool only. It does not generate HTML or CSS code.
Adobe Spark (not to be confused with Sparkle App for Mac only), is for creating a one page website or newsletter.
Adobe Portfolio is a free website platform for CC subscribers to showcase their own work online. It ties in seamlessly with Behance -- another creative venue. It's fine for a portfolio but it has limitations. I treat Portfolio as a companion to my main website, blog and social media channels.
Other Muse Alternatives have been discussed and compared below.
Muse no longer appears in the Desktop App if you have had to reinstall everything for any reason.
If you look at other FAQ questions you will note that they further state you won't lose access to the software.
As others have stated though, web technologies are constantly changing so it is best to look for an alternative.
remove the muse makes the prestige of adobe looks like Bill G
