Will CS6 work if I update my software to macOS High Sierra 10.13.6?

I have Adobe CS6 (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign) installed and working on my Macbook Pro running macOS Yosemite.  I would like to upgrade to macOS High Sierra but am afraid that my Adobe CS6 applications won't work after the update.  Can someone confirm for me that they will work properly if I upgrade to High Sierra?

I know that there are discussions on this forum about new installations of CS6 on computers running High Sierra, and references to this link: Installing Creative Suite on macOS 10.12 (Sierra).  But I currently have CS6 installed on my computer and want to update my software, which may be a different situation.

Can an Adobe staff member help confirm for me whether my currently installed CS6 Suite will work if I do a software update to High Sierra from Yosemite?

Thank you

Thanks for your help John.

Maybe a question that does have an answer is if anyone on these forums had Adobe CS6 installed on their machine and then upgraded to macOS High Sierra, and what happened?

Thanks for your help.

I have CS6 on Sierra. I upgraded to Mojave and realized it didn't work, so I'm just finishing up reinstalling Sierra. I would like to know as well if it works with High Sierra at least. My system is a bit of a mess after this 'downgrading'.
