Photoshop CC (2014) Can't Sync/Upload settings

  • Problem
  • Updated 5 years ago
After Installing CC 2014.0.0 and imported all my setting from 14.2.1 i wanted to sync/upload my settings from 2014.0.0. the upload starts but after a while i get "can't connect to creative cloud" error. i tried many times, sometimes it can upload up to 7 MB but not anymore. Also the full upload varies between 90MB and 170MB?

by the way i really like that now we can chose between upload and download!

are the settings for the different versions kept separately on the Cloud or they will be messed up after i upload the slightly different settings from CC(2014)

is there someone with the same issue?

@David: Sync Preferences does NOT sync CC's preferences with CC 2014... So the 'seamless' of the subscription is nothing else than before (CC) - when updating from any older version to the next version (or 2-4 versions later).

- CC -> C4 2014 needs manually removing the older version
- CC -> CC 2014 needs manually move plugins, presets, preferences
- CC -> CC 2014 needs manually de-install the older version
- CC -> CC 2014 needs manually re-syncing everything to the cloud
- CC -> CC 2014 needs manually removing the CC-icon from the menu-bar (OSX): Please note Adobe: The menu bar is MINE!

- CC -> CC 2014 need to close CC, when installing CC 2014 (WHY?)

Julian is right... just install and move the Preferences, etc... manually - at least that's as seamless as before. :(

This thread solved the problem for me. Restart the computer if it doesn't work right away.

Worked just fine then updated and it doesn't work any longer.

The quality of Photoshop has really declined for the past 3 versions. The first two had some changes that almost made them unusable at a professional level. Then this.

I shouldn't be on forums looking for fixes, I have work to do. The software should just work.

Reverting to the older, better version.
