Your assumption is totally incorrect. CC works exactly like any other desktop software.
Thank you Bob for the reply. Yes understand that the CC works like other desktop software. I was referring to the Creative Cloud Files folder where you can place your files. Some other apps refer this to being a desktop app.
You can upload files to a server after you create them, but that's up to you. InDesign is not licensed to run from a server, however.
Thank you Peter,
Each workstation has a licensed version of Indesign. The software will not be run from a server.
I found some info on the forum today which answered my question.
