Sync Settings allows for universal user settings across devices, locations
Adobe announced today the availability of Sync Settings in InDesign CC in Creative Cloud. The new feature allows users to save preferences to the cloud, allowing for universal settings for InDesign CC regardless of work location. Additionally, Adobe recently unveiled an updated InDesign CC Server, a layout and composition engine that creates an end-to-end automated publishing solution when used with Adobe Creative Cloud tools.
The Sync Settings option lets designers synchronize their InDesign CC workspace settings to Creative Cloud -- including keyboard shortcuts, presets and workspaces. The company claims that the update "improves productivity across environments, ensures seamless new hardware setup on any computer and ensures that software upgrades are stress-free by enabling customers to control their InDesign settings in the Cloud."
The update to the InDesign Server improves the workflow of the tool, allowing for more integrated multiple user access and improvements to the user interface. InDesign CC Server is not available in the default Creative Cloud license, but is available for separate licensing.
