    problem with creative cloud/ InDesign

    breindyk76165530

      I have a Creative Cloud Membership (student version) which includes all the desktop apps. When I try to install InDesign to my desktop, a box pops up telling me I can start a trial or buy now. I should be able to have access to it but I am having major difficulties with it (I've tried many times and got same result). I hope someone out there can help me with this issue! Much appreciated.
