Creative Cloud Desktop requires reinstall every time I start my computer. Why do I have to this? How can I fix this? I am using a Mac Mini with with High Sierra 10.13.6
there's probably some program (eg, av, antimalware, cleaner) that's removing some needed part of creative cloud.
in any case, your trial is only going to last a week and you shouldn't have to restart your computer more than once or twice during that time.
I am beyond the trial and paying a monthly fee.
If I cannot make use of the Creative Cloud, what alternative Adobe program will allow me to convert PDF s to Excel or Word without storage feature and lower cost and work more reliably??
The conversion feature is most important to me, and the ability to save the converted file in a xls or doc format in addition to the original PDG file.
