Adobe Photoshop CC 14.2 is now available! If you don’t see an update available for Photoshop in the Creative Cloud desktop application, it might be because of your time zone – the Creative Cloud desktop application only checks once a day. To force the CC desktop application to check for updates, quit the CC desktop app (click on the gear icon in the upper right and choose Quit). Then, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application again – it will check for updates upon launch.

      Hi Yves,

      Are these custom scripts you’re syncing?

    I’ve having – and have always had – lots of issues with Creative Cloud. Updates just don’t appear without lots of messing and plenty of randomness. I’ve done all the usual stuff: quit CC, log out and back in again, restart machine, etc… Today I had a new one: I quit CC, to see if it would see the Photoshop update. It didn’t, so I uninstalled Photoshop, then reinstalled using CC as normal. It installed 14.0.0 – why is that even available for download from anywhere? This is on my MacBook; on my iMac, the only way to get any install to work at all is to log in as root, but that’s not guaranteed by any means.

      It sounds like something is modifying or deleting required files used by the applications.

      Sometimes it’s customers deleting files manually, sometimes it’s using system cleaners like MacKeeper, CleanMyMac, etc.

      I’ll have someone one contact you to get logs to see if we can figure out which files are being modified and why.

        Thanks, got the email. I don’t have any “cleaner” apps running.

        In any case, I have managed to get everything up to date, using the log-in-as-root approach, which means I won’t see updates in CC logged in as myself but can at least actively install them when I choose to.

    Hi,
    When I try to use fill>pattern>trees (for example) as Yves previous my Photoshop CC updated (and OSX) give me a Symmetry Error and if I attend at same function it crash. Unfortunately I don’t understand as the problems as been solved because I tried to reinstall Photoshop and also to delete preferences with CMD+Option+Shift but it didn’t work. Could some one help me? Thanks

      Sounds like we have a fix for this that will go out as an update in the near future.

      Hi Domenico,

      If you contact me at rmech at adobe dot com, we can try a workaround if you would like to use the scripted patterns now.
