With the 2015 release of Creative Cloud, Adobe automatically removes existing software when updating to the latest version. To preserve previously installed versions of InDesign, toggle Advanced Options and un-tick Remove Old Versions when installing the 2015 release. To re-install a previous version of InDesign, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, select the Apps tab and scroll down to Find Additional Apps. Change the filter to View Previous Versions, click Install and select a previous version.

Linux support statement

Typefi will provide installation support for distributions based on the Linux 2.6 kernel or later to customers with Gold or Platinum Support Agreements.

Note

These system requirements are baseline requirements, but your number of users, number of assets, and number of asset revisions affect system performance. The requirements with an asterisk (†) are affected by these variables.
