The Flash-based extensions are no longer supported by PS CC 2014. Refer to http://blogs.adobe.com/photoshopdotcom/2014/04/photoshop-spring-cleaning.html. More details here: http://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/2014/06/installing-the-2014-release-of-creative-cloud.html
And here: http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/2014/06/2014-release-of-photoshop-cc-faq.html#plugins (scroll down to "Why don’t my 3rd Panels show up in the 2014 release of Photoshop CC? What happened to Oil Paint, Mini-Bridge & Kuler?”)
There is a new Kuler HTML5 panel available on Add Ons: http://adobe.ly/UgxQSN . You can browse and download other extensions from Add ons website. (Please keep File Sync on in Adobe Creative Cloud application) Add the author of Adobe eMailer and Watermark is working to create their HTML counterpart.
How do you turn of File Sync? Where is it located?
If it is not on, is that the reason Window>Extensions is greyed out in CC 2014?
If no extension was loaded by PS CC 2014, the Window->Extensions will be greyed out.
The File Sync is on by default. To check it, click the downward arrow at the top right corner of Adobe Creative Cloud application (near the gear icon), select "Preferences". In the popped up dialog, select "Files" tag page, then you can see if the sync is on.
I have installed Extension Manager 126.96.36.199 as it show up in Finder>Applications. It is working in CC but not in PS CC 2014. Now, File Sync was turned off and I just turned it on. Should I uninstall Extension Manager 188.8.131.52 and then reinstall it for it to work?
BTW, many thanks!
I just noticed that when I turn File Sync on it doesn't stay on. I went to the gear icon, turn it on but it doesn't stay on. It seems to default to off and I don't see a way I can keep it on. Frustrating.
You don't have to uninstall/reinstall Extension Manager.
Thank you "Carl Sun" for the input! Although I was aware that the Flash based extensions were no longer supported my confusion arose due to my updating extension manager and seeing that it had Listed/Accepted all my extensions, which to me, indicated that they were compatible? I would have thought that the updated extension manager was for CC2014 but I guess it is universal to previous versions of CC as well?
Another question is - How does one identify an extension as being either Flash based or HTML based? If I had known that I probably would have realized why some of my extensions were not showing up in the Window/Extensions drop down in PSCC2014!
Extension Manager has no knowledge which extensions are CC2014 compatible or not, because it's impossible to embed a database in Extension Manager to record the compatibility information of ALL versions of ALL extensions. The authors of extensions declare the compatibility information via mxi file or manifest file within the extension package, and Extension Manager retrieves this information and installs them. The authors didn't anticipate that the Flash based extension support would be removed in PS CC 2014, so the extensions still declare they support the version higher than CC. As a result, Extension Manager installs these extensions for CC 2014 (copy all files to correct location), but PS CC 2014 will not load them. This is why EM lists them but you can't find them in PS CC 2014.
The extension files (.zxp) are actually zip files. You can unzip them. Flash based extensions will contain one or more .swf file(s).
I just wanted to thank you for the info regarding my issue with the Extension Manager CC! With this knowledge I completely understand the workings of EMCC and it no longer is a mystery...I guess I'll just have to wait and see if the developers of my Flash versions of extensions ever get updated to the correct format!
Thanks for your input and opening my eyes to the changes in EMCC!
