[Athen] Adobe for Creative Cloud

Thanks Bevi for your clarification.

The University IT department is covering the license for the 1st couple of years and then it falls on the responsibility of each department. While I appreciate getting an updated computer (not a huge fan of Windows 10 yet), I often time lose some programs I use frequently and have to contact vendors to reinstate the individual license. I am glad the University is covering the cost of the Adobe Creative Cloud, as I had to recently renew my JAWS and Zoom Text network licenses. My department has been asking for several years to have a technology fund added to our yearly department operating funds, but keep getting denied. The license renewal can be several thousand dollars every couple of years with JAWS, Zoom Text and Kurzweil.

Have a nice holiday weekend. Hope to see you this year at Accessing Higher Ground. I was not able to attend last years' conference.

First, Adobe’s Creative Cloud (CC) suite of software programs are not cloud software. It’s a subscription to their software programs which are installed on your computer, not run in the cloud.

The CC suite includes all of the creative and design programs from Adobe, including Acrobat Pro DC, so your existing standalone license of Acrobat Pro DC won’t be needed anymore. You’ll use the version that comes with the CC suite.

And it’s identical to what you’re using now.

Here’s a list of the programs that come with the CC subscription: includes graphic design, Photoshop, digital media, fonts, and more. https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/features.html

Read about the most recent updates to Adobe Creative Cloud, including new features, capabilites, and services included with your membership.

So why is it called “creative cloud?” Haven’t a clue, but I think someone in marketing thought is sounded cute. There are some cloud-based services, but they’re relatively minor and don’t affect Acrobat.

Hi all,

I am getting a new desktop (Dell) as part of the University's refresh system (Windows 10). I use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC for text extraction. The University has a new "system" license for the Adobe for Creative Cloud and may not support my department's Adobe Acrobat Pro DC license. Is the version of Acrobat in the online Adobe Creative Cloud comparable to the Pro DC's functionality?
