My issue is with syncing my settings for the updated version of Adobe Indesign CC 2014. I have never had an issue with this before and when i updated to the new version, none of my settings are synced. I have already turned it off on my previous Indesign versions (CS5, and CC) but it still comes up with none of my settings when i close it and restart it. every time i open it, i move all the setting and get the windows and tabs i need open, go to Sync Settings Now. It says i have settings synced on my creative cloud account, but its not working.
You're calling your issue "syncing your settings" but it sounds like you're interested in migrating your settings from an earlier version.
Here's a blog post I wrote for InDesignSecrets.com which explains the difference. See if this helps:
