Adobe have announced the immediate availability of the Creative Cloud CC2018 at Adobe MAX 2017.

Can I upgrade to CC2018 and keep my latest Astute Graphics plug-ins?

Yes! We have issued an upgrade to all current-version plug-ins. The following plug-ins are now compatible for Illustrator CS6 through to the latest CC2018:

Our free plug-ins have also been updated so that they are compatible with CC2018:

 

What's the cost?

All updates for current plug-ins to Illustrator CC2018 are free of charge.

How to update your plug-ins

If you have already installed CC2018 — or are just about to — then simply download the latest Astute Graphics Unified Installer v1.2.4 (ensuring that you have quit Illustrator first)

You can download the installer two ways:

Any problems with CC2018?

There are currently no known issues with the CC2018 release for both Windows and up to Mac OS 10.12 (see Adobe's notes regarding Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra).

If you are finding that Illustrator CC2018 isn’t loading following installation of the latest plug-ins (Astute Graphics Unified Installer v1.2.4 or higher), it is likely due to preferences having been automatically copied over from an earlier version of Illustrator. This is default behaviour for the Creative Cloud update mechanism.

We do recommend clearing out your Illustrator preferences and starting again. You can reset these by following our advice here.

Note that this process will reset all your panels, etc. in Illustrator. These may be re-applied and set to your workflow manually once more.

 

Which versions of Adobe Illustrator are now supported by Astute Graphics?

The latest installer now supports the following versions of Adobe Illustrator on both Windows and Mac OS:

  • CS6 (v16)
  • CC (v17.0)
  • CC (v17.1)
  • CC2014 (v18)
  • CC2015 (v19)
  • CC2015.3 (v20)
  • CC2017 (v21)
  • CC2018 (v22)

 

Note for users of previous generation Plug-ins:

  • ColliderScribe v1
  • DynamicSketch v1
  • Phantasm (older versions)
  • VectorScribe v2
  • WidthScribe v1

 

Previous generation version customers who do not yet wish to upgrade to the current versions of the above plug-ins can still run the latest installer to update all other current plug-ins. However, you will need to un-tick your previous generation plug-ins on the installer (as shown below) to ensure that these older versions remain installed on older versions of Illustrator present on your system.

It is possible to maintain an older version of Illustrator (such as CS6 or CC2017) in parallel with the latest Cloud-based version. Please refer to Adobe's documentation on how to do this.
