Who uses Creative Cloud and CS6?
5 months ago

There is a story on Macintouch.com whereby a user who bought into the CC mobel had his CS6 license invalidated because he went for the reduced rate subscription model.

Yet again Adobe made another unexpected reach into my wallet. Don't upgrade your CS6 standalone to CC, or you will lose your CS6 standalone license. They got me, I fell into another trap upgrade, and now I'm screwed. There's no other word for it.

I had upgraded CS suite to CS6 because I was not going to buy into cloud's ability to switch off the way I make my living. I figured that would buy me a couple years. Then CC files began showing up, so I opted a few months ago for Adobe's offer to existing CS owners to get CC for 1 year reduced price. I remember entering my CS suite serial at some point to verify that I was an owner of CS6 but not agreeing to disable my CS6. The one year price was basically similar to other offers for non CS suite owners.

I bought a new MacBook Pro last weekend and decided to install the CS6 suite that I own. No way. My acceptance of their stupid CC offer has overridden my license on CS6. I invalidated my CS6 serial, since I used it for the upgrade to CC. I called and was told I switched and there is nothing they can do.

So I paid full price for CS6 a year ago, just to have it switched off because I went for Adobe's reduced rate offer for existing owners. Another trick, gotcha by Adobe. Again, they got me. My mother would not have approved of the words that came out of my mouth after learning this."

Never buy version 1.0 of anything.
