Oh, is that what that cloud icon and pop up messages I'm getting is about? That's how I get illustrator?
I turned off the cloud icon thing. I guess I would restart my computer to get it to come back on again. I'll try that. (boy do I miss using mac OS9 and my CD of illustrator, it was so easy. Pay and go.)
I'll let you know how my adventures in the clouds works out, if it does. . . . lol
Okay, to sum up my "adventure" with creative cloud and using illustrator:
You can't lease illustrator on it's own then use it. You can use a trial version on it's own.
You have to send out an invitation to yourself from within your creative cloud application, then reply to that invitation from an email indicating you accept to use the software. . . . I think that's what I did.
Now I can blissfully forget all this and just get on with my work, . . . I think.
