FAQs

I clicked install but the extension is not syncing and installing to photoshop.

Make sure your Creative Cloud application is logged in to the same account. It needs to be running with syncing turned on. If this is all set up correctly you will see a notification in the Home feed (image below) telling you that the plugin was installed. 

Try logging in to your desktop Creative Cloud application then visit https://exchange.adobe.com/addons/my_addons to remove and then install the plugin again (leaving at least 10 seconds between each action to let CC download and instal the extension). You should get a notification on your operating system when the extension is removed and installed. Then close and reopen Photoshop. You should now see the extension in the drop down (window/extentions/boords).
