The new Sync Settings feature lets you sync your general preferences, keyboard shortcuts, presets, and libraries to the Creative Cloud.
For example, if you use more than one computer, the Sync Settings feature helps keep settings synchronized across machines. You can also download and use settings on a computer that contains a copy of the software licensed to a different user. This feature lets multiple users work with their own personal settings on the same computer.
For example, freelance editors working during different shifts in a post-production facility. You can sync using your Adobe Creative Cloud account. The settings get uploaded to your Creative Cloud account and then get downloaded and applied on the other computer. After the settings are applied on the other computer, initiate the sync manually. This does not happen automatically, and it cannot be scheduled.
The Adobe ID associated with the product's license is used to identify the user. If you haven't already created and uploaded settings for this application, the local settings are uploaded to the cloud by default. Before initiating sync, ensure that you have upgraded the CC desktop application to the latest version and you are logged in with your Adobe ID.
Sync settings from a different account You can choose to sync the settings from a different Adobe ID instead of the Adobe ID associated with the product license used on the computer you're working on. Enter the Adobe ID and password. The settings for that Creative Cloud account are downloaded and applied, and the user name appears in the Start Screen.
Managing Sync Clear Settings You can clear all settings and revert to default settings. If you select Clear Settings while a project is open, Premiere Pro saves and closes the current project to proceed. Specify Sync preferences, and manage sync conflicts The Preference dialog box lets you specify the sync setting options.
For example, you can choose to have only keyboard shortcuts stored in the Creative Cloud, and not sync the other preferences and settings on a computer. The Preference dialog box also lets you choose what to do when a sync conflict occurs. To sync your settings successfully, change the settings only from within the application. The sync settings feature does not sync files manually placed in the preferences folder location.
Select the options to sync preferences and settings. Synchronizable preferences are not dependent on computer or hardware settings. Keyboard shortcuts created for Windows only sync with a Windows computer. When Syncing When you initiate a sync, the modification date between the local settings and the settings stored in the Creative Cloud is compared. If modification dates do not match, a sync conflict is detected.
You can specify what action to take when a sync conflict occurs by selecting from the following: Syncs settings from your computer to Creative Cloud.
Syncs settings from Creative Cloud to your computer, overwriting the local version with the Creative Cloud version of settings. Automatically clear settings on application quit Select this preference option to clear the sync settings every time you quit Premiere Pro. On next launch, the default settings are used. Auto-save projects to Creative Cloud Your Adobe Creative Cloud account comes with online storage that makes your files available to you anywhere and on any device or computer.
Premiere Pro lets you auto-save your projects directly to your Creative Cloud-based storage, letting you save backups of your projects to a secure and accessible storage environment.
When Premiere Pro auto-saves a project, a directory named "auto-save" is created in your Creative Cloud online storage. All the backed-up projects are stored in the "auto-save" directory. You can access your backed-up projects from the Files tab of your Creative Cloud desktop application. Or you can access the files from your Creative Cloud account on the Web. For example, Premiere Pro CC 7.
