All sounds loverly, just a pity you cant sync other workers computers to your sync settings.
ie: my computer would be prime setup and all 10 other computers in the office would sync to my settings.
I'm pretty sure that if this more limited kind of syncing is successful that it would be logical to expand it to other cases as you suggest. Saying that, I have no idea was Adobe is planning, I'm only expressing a personal opinion.
I second the steve opinion. This is 1.0 version of sync settings and depending upon the user feedback we will expand this feature in upcoming release.
I just installed ID CC and there is no sync option or tab in preferences, but there is for Photoshop and Illustrator.
Install the 9.1 update.
Bob is correct. Syncing settings didn't come with InDesign CC 9.0. It was added in the 9.1 update.
Got it. Thanks!
I've installed the 9.1 update, and I see the sync settings on both the Mac and PC, but nothing seems to sync. It appears to sync, and I can see that the preferences file has been copied up to the cloud, but the PDF presets never seem to make it over to my PC. It still shows the default PDF presets, not all my custom ones.
Any idea how to fix this?
I've found the same with Mac and Windows. I'm not sure what does and
doesn't sync crossplatform.
Ah, okay, thanks for letting me know. I'll stop beating my head against the wall to try to make it work. Maybe the PDF presets aren't cross-platform compatible. Too bad though-- was hoping to work seamlessly between my 2 machines.
PDF presets are not platform specific, so it's likely they just are not included yet.
PDF Presets is listed as being capable of being synced in InDesign 9.1. I'm imagining that it is a bug if it is not working, and will be fixed in the next update to InDesign.

I would like to update that with Version 1.0 of Sync Setting feature PDF preset can be synced cross platform(Win/MAC). In current version of sync setting we are syncing following 5 assets.
1.) PDF Preset
3.) Glyph sets
4.) Menu Set
5.) Keyboard shortcut set
Out of above 5 i "Keyboard Shortcut set" is the one which is not supported cross platform. Rest four are fully supported cross platform.
I would like to update you that version 1.0 of sync setting feature will not sync your already existing asset. Stewart, in your case your customized PDF preset were already existing before you updated your application to Indesign 9.1which inturns enable sync setting feature.
If you now create any new PDF preset then you should be able to sync this across platform (Let me know if you face any issue in this workflow).
As a workaround for your already existing PDF preset you can do the following steps.
- Edit the existing PDF preset.
- Make any modification. Let says turn ON and the OFF any check box (This will not hamper the original settings of your preset)
- Save after editing.
Now if you will sync from machine#1 and sync on machine#2 the you should be able to get your customized PDF preset.
That worked-- thanks! I simply turned on and off a check box for each of my custom PDF settings, and they synched that time. Thank you very much.
Thanks, Dimesh, that's helpful to know!
